Anyone who has worked with teenagers and young adults knows they can be a challenging audience to connect with. This is often because students are lectured to or “talked down to” in so many areas of life; they’re no longer children but not quite adults.
When paired with the Fatal Vision® Drowsy & Distracted Driving goggles, a driving simulator like the Roadster Pedal Cart or Simulated Impaired Driving Experience (SIDNE) vehicle allows students to safely gain first-hand experience with driving while distracted in a controlled environment. We often hear from educators that the simulators help bring students out of their shells and provide an opportunity to share feedback and participate more than they would in a typical lesson.
Enriches the learning experience
While videos, testimonials, and statistics can help to highlight important and serious topics in the classroom, an experiential tool like the simulators can help to enrich the overall learning process. A distracted driving simulator adds a new dimension to learning that students can truly reflect on and will likely remember for years to come.
Keeps students engaged
With endless competing interests for teenagers’ attention, it’s an ongoing challenge to keep lessons fresh and fun. By getting students up from their desks, out of the classroom, and taking part in a driving simulation, they will inevitably have feedback and want to discuss the experience.
