GC410 – Life-Size Simulations – Life-Size Simulation Review
GC410-S3 – Life-Size Simulation Review – Participating in simulations can increase retention of knowledge by seventy-five percent. A Life-Size Simulation involves students replicating the performance of an object, using a designated sequence or flow, such as replicating gas flow through the parts of a motor or blood flow through the sections of the heart. After Identifying a skill and the chronological steps to complete the skill or function related to the lesson, Alexa or Instructor will guide students, individually, with a partner, in a small group or class, to identify the necessary stations for the simulation. A station (stationary participant) is a tangible location, component or step that remains stationary, while performing a function. Then, students (traveling participants) will map out the sequence or flow of activity for objects to move from station to station to complete a task or cycle.
