 Benefits: bug fixes, avoiding
misconceptions, better interactions with
assessment and gaming systems
 New features for you and your classes to
build better models. Oh, and see “Help”!
 PT 6.0.1 is REQUIRED to use many
curriculum practice activities, but also
quizzes, Chapter exams, Practice and
Actual Final Exams, and of course PTSAs

• Scientific Visualization is a crucial part of
most STEM disciplines
• Consider PT Simulation mode a single-step,
entire-network, packet sniffer
• Research shows the power of animations,
packet tracing, and student “what if”
questions
• Check out the protocol list! Device tables!
Packet contents! Scenario features! QoS!

• Research indicates the utility of
performance-based assessments
• PTSAs can improve the validity, fairness,
and security of an your exam portfolio
• Automatically graded work product, process
logs, and extensive feedback
• Isomorphic tasks (“task families”) allow for
better security and/or multiple retakes for
mastery

• Research shows the power of learners
building their own network models
• This process may be described as
constructivist; as an “inquiry” process; as
“what ifs” with “aha” moments
• Scaffolding can be heavy (lots of guidance)
or minimal (more problem-based),
individual or in teams, in-person or via
social networking, compare/contrasting PT
& real

• Learning research emphasizes the
importance of context, especially for
motivation and transfer of learning to work
contexts. Consider .pkz (like zip, with gfx)
• Curriculum .pka files are often (not always)
written with a minimal amount of context to
avoid cognitive overload (distraction)
• Stories provide context; but many times the
best stories are localized to the learners

• Research indicates that games have great
educational potential
• Many types of NetAcad resources can be
turned into games by social means
• We have two computer-based games,
Packet Tracer Multiuser (PTMU) and Aspire
• Educational games that are both fun and
teach useful networking skills are
challenging for Cisco to develop; help us.

• First, you need not, since there are:
• dozens of new PT 6.0.1 activities,
• hundreds of PT 5.3.x activities
• activities you personally have written
• But maybe you want to modify them?
Maybe you want to translate or localize?
• Maybe you alone, or you and your peers,
want to write your own, from “scratch”?

• You are part of a complex activity system
• If your preferred mode of collaboration is
international, check out the PT community
• If your preferred mode of collaboration is more local, work with
Sew Hoon, Kevin, Karen, and Giuseppe and your peers
• There is immense power and openness in the Packet Tracer
Ecosystem. Be patient with Activity Wizard, Scoring Model and
Scripting, as we prioritize student-facing features, not AW UX
• WE. ARE. PARTNERS.
