This study identified that circuit design and simulation applications are an effective alternative to traditional laboratory exercises. Pedagogical implications include the appropriate use of simulations, advantages gained through both laboratory treatments, and the effects of simulations on lower and higher levels of understanding. These findings are relevant to technology education instruction as well as technical, engineering, mathematical, and scientific instructional programs.Simulations as Instructional Tools Simulations are utilized as instructional tools for many scientific and technical instructional applications. Aldrich (2005) classifies instructional simulations as being branching stories, interactive spreadsheets, anbsp;...
