Article#8: What are contrived experiences? What are varied types of contrived experiences? Why do we use contrived experiences? What standards can be used to evaluate contrived experiences?

  • Contrived experiences are edited copies of reality and are used as substitute for real things when it is not practical or not possible to bring or do the real thing in the classroom.
  • We have models, mock up, specimens and objectives or artifacts and simulation. These are varied types of contrived experiences.
  • To overcome limitations of space and time. To edit reality for us to be able to focus on parts or a process of a system that we intend to study. To overcome difficulties of size. To understand the inaccessible. And to help the learners understand abstraction.
  • The most important things to remember when we make use of contrived experiences, if for one reason or another they could not replace the real things in size and color and we should at least cautions the user or the reader by giving the scale.

  2. what is really mean by contrived experiences? can you explain it? thank you,....

    1. this is the substitute of the specific things that impossible to bring in one area. for an example for the artifacts elephants it's so hard to bring that in the classroom so we need to substitute this through the toys that it will be formed as an elephants so you can wider explain to your learners that is he elephants.
