Computer models are entering the classroom as an answer to tackling complex issues like climate change. New modelling software allows students, from as early as primary school, to create and interact with models and simulations that allow them to experience systems in ways they never could before. But what are computational models, and can they really improve learning? In this latest episode "Learning with Models: An introduction to modelling for education" find out some of the answers to these questions and how models are playing a part in 21st century education.
