Children are natural modellers. Through play they explore and extend what they have experienced. A computer model allows students to explore situations which might be: too dangerous - like flying a plane too impractical - like recording the results of a thousand games of pool. NCET is a registered charity funded by Government to develop and promote the use of IT in education and training. ——————————————————————————————————5/3—— WE FIND OUT WHAT WORKS AND P OMOTEIT Registered address: Milburn Hill Road Science Park, Coventry, CV4 7JJ Further on Keyboard Advice Frame It
