Effect of integration of computer simulations in traditional teaching methodology

By Salah Mahdi Abdulrasool, Rakesh Mishra, John D. Fieldhouse, Steve Ward and John McComish


This paper investigates the effect of the integration of computer simulations in the traditional teaching methodology on learning effectiveness of a group of students having significant variation in marks obtained in pre-learning examination. For comparison another group of students having a relatively low distribution in marks have also been examined for their learning effectiveness when traditional teaching methodology is used.\ud This study in the subject area of mechanical engineering (Computer aided design/computer aided manufacturing /computerized numerical control machines) shows that the average marks obtained by the group taught using computer assisted instructions in various evaluation categories are significantly higher with fairly low standard deviation as compared to the marks obtained by the group taught using traditional teaching method.\ud Keywords: Computer technolog
