Virtual environments and experimental learning in statistics education



Most statistical textbooks contain lots of examples and exercises, but these typically emphasize the analysis of data already obtained by someone else. As such, they do not teach the student to collect data or set up an experiment.
Modern information technology allows the creation of more and more realistic (virtual) environments, within which the student has much control over his/her data collection or design decisions. Problem solving in such virtual environments can then become an intermediate step between end-of-the-chapter problems and real world experiment design and data collection.
This session aims to present applications set up with this goal in mind, and to discuss experiences with their use.
