Benefits of Simulation-Based Learning • Students who explore and experiment using Packet Tracer develop intellectual

curiosity and critical thinking skills. • Packet Tracer’s visually rich simulation environment facilitates comprehension of

complex technology concepts. • Students who troubleshoot networks using Packet Tracer develop problem solving

skills. • Students who design and build virtual networks using Packet Tracer improve their

innovation and creativity skills. • Students who explore concepts at their own pace in Packet Tracer’s safe, virtual

environment gain confidence in their decision making skills and abilities. • Using Packet Tracer for team collaboration and competition activities builds social,

communication, and negotiation skills.

Packet Tracer Activity Wizard • Anyone can author, the PT Activity Wizard guides you • The process is basically write instructions, build a correct answer network,

specify grading, specify an initial network, save • Ability to create your own learning

activities, tasks, labs, games and complex assessments • Build scaffolded learning experiences,

formative and summative assessments

Packet Tracer Multiuser Functionality • PT is a network-capable (peer to peer) application, using the real network

(TCP socket connections) to carry the Packet Tracer virtual packets • The PT application running on one computer can communicate with the PT

application running on 1 or more other computers • This connectivity between multiple instances of PT supports teamwork,

classroom games, collaboration, competition, remote instructor-student interaction, and social networking • Packet Tracer traffic is isolated to prevent any access to external equipment

keeping your school network secure.

Key E-Learning Component • Learning theories stress early hands-on experiences • Key components of Networking Academy e-learning strategy include In-person, hands-on labs with real equipment Online curriculum and assessment Cisco Packet Tracer Instructor Collaboration Tools

• Learning cycles alternating both Packet Tracer activities and in-person,

hands-on lab experiences with real equipment are a best practice for teaching CCNA-level networking to beginners
