19 April 1995 Collaborative learning: migration of distributed interactive simulation to educational applications
Author Affiliations +
The educational system within the United States has historically emphasized learning as an individual accomplishment. Working effectively with others is a skill that has been omitted from the traditional educational setting even though this reflects the modern workplace. A collaborative learning environment is one of the educational technologies being developed to address the requirement for imparting group skills within the educational system. It is a form of networked learning environment that permits students to work together on authentic learning tasks. Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) is a technology develop by the DoD to facilitate the integration and use of multiple simulations and simulators in a distributed collaborative computing environment. DIS can enhance collaborative learning environments in future educational applications by introducing authentic simulations of real world events into the learning experience.
