Six weeks ago I started my PhD research on how to optimize the learning effects of using computer simulations in an educational setting. My first month of literature research can be found at http://bit.ly/edusims, a preliminary categorization of variables that come into play is shown at http://bit.ly/prezivars and I've posted a first attempt to select variables I’d like to focus on at http://bit.ly/bubblvars. Looking forward to your comments.

thanks for setting this up Nico - your PhD sounds really interesting - very useful to see your lit review to date.

I wrote a chapter reviewing research on computer simulations in education.  A draft copy is here: http://usu.academia.edu/documents/0088/0461/Holton-how-people-learn-with-simulations.pdf

Good luck with it,
