Edugame: openBVE – Togsimulator

Skjermbilde_2011-04-27_kl

«openBVE includes detailed per-car simulation of the brake systems, friction, air resistance, toppling and more. In 3D cabs, the driving experience is augmented with forces that shake your simulated body upon acceleration and braking, as well as in curves. Besides that, openBVE features a 3D positional sound system best enjoyed with surround speakers, train exteriors and timetables for the current run. Finally, via the main menu, routes and trains be easily selected to start a new session, the controls can be configured to keyboard or joystick devices, and a variety of options can be selected.
Compared to other simulators of the genre, especially compared to commercial games, openBVE has its main focus on realism, not necessarily on user-friendliness. You should be willing to study operational manuals for the routes and trains you want to drive, and will in many cases not get along by just memorizing a few keystrokes. If you can identify with this focus, openBVE might be the right simulator for you.»

Kan ein togsimulator brukast til læring?
Kanskje i matematikk (tid, fart, avstand), fysikk, geografi eller samfunnsfag?
Kikk gjerne på skjermbilete http://openbve.trainsimcentral.co.uk/screenshots.html og kom gjerne med forslag.

Smartboard – Edusim (KillerApp?)

Jeanette tipser om Edusim, har lasta ned og gleder meg til testing.

Edusim er som bildet over sier en gratis – nedlastbar – virtuell verden for de som har et interaktivt whitboard i klasserommet. Her kan du og klassen samarbeide med vennskapsklasser fra fjernere steder.
