Will at Work Learning

I just read the following research article, and found a great mini-review of some essential research. Experiment-Specific Findings: The article shows that simulations—the kind that ask learners to navigate through the simulation on their own—are more beneficial when learners are supported in their simulation playing. For example, they do not thoroughly analyze the task or problem they need to solve (Chi, Feltovich, & Glaser, 1981; Veenman, Elshout, & Meijer, 1997) and tend to act immediately (Ge & Land, 2003; Veenman et al., Hagemans, M.

Because of a Support Lifecycle policy introduced in 2002 (and also because they desperately want to push people onto Windows 7 and 8), Microsoft are ending support for Windows XP and Office 2003, including Internet Explorer 8, after April 8, 2014.
