This lesson facilitates the development of skills which allow student to perform basic electrical measurements within the context of a technical fundamentals course found in many Engineering Technology programs. In this lesson students cycle through a serious of activities progressing through simulated, real (minimized risk), and real environments.
- “simulated” refers to activities that are virtual or exist in a purely computer-mediated environment
- “real (minimized risk)” refers to activities that are computer-mediated, yet replicate real measurements (via a physical device plugged into the computer) within a controlled environment; a hybrid or bridge between simulated and real
- “real” environment refers to activities carried out in a true lab environment only (no computer mediation)
