Abstract

'Hybrid modeling' is an innovative technological platform that enables students to link multi-agent models ("in" the computer) and electronic sensors ("outside") in real time. The platform is designed for learners to validate, refine, and debug their computer models using real-world data. Also, the technology broadens the types of scientific explorations possible in classrooms. Pilot studies suggest a real-to-virtual reciprocity that catalyzes further inquiry toward deeper understanding.
