Simulations and Technology

I was just reading an article from Mr. Maters' blog about simulations in the classroom and I thought this would be a great idea for language arts and tech. The students could be reading a novel and could simulate possible scenarios for different endings in the story. 

Students could use blogs or discussion boards for sharing how their version of the scenario would end, and or present it from iPads using haiku deck to tell their story. 

Another thought would be to use simulations for discussion of nonfiction text and discuss the effects and outcomes of certain events. Again students could use their iPads or computers not just for research, but for sharing their arguments digitally.
