Modeling technologies are a powerful tool for affecting learning. Although dynamic modeling is not an easy task, modeling technologies are maturing. As tools become easier to use, more people will build models, and this is likely to drive learning theory and practice in new directions (Hadwin et al., 2005). This chapter centers on one aspect of modeling: dynamic modeling with technology, where students build dynamic models that “run.” This chapter particularly does not address other forms of modeling technologies such as concept mapping (as a form of modeling domain knowledge), expert systems (modeling of problems), and case databases (modeling experiences). The chapter begins with the conceptual framework for modeling with technology, describes extant dynamic modeling tools, reviews investigations of the factors associated with modeling technologies in the classroom, and points to future design and research.
