Powered by the cyberinfrastructure platform developed at Purdue University, presents nanotechnology learners with interactive, graphical simulation programs right in their web browsers. These immediate and sharable modeling tools invite active and collaborative learning. Consequently, using nanoHUB changes the classroom because we can expect learners to construct knowledge as much as receive it in prepackaged form. Furthermore, with cyberinfrastructure-enabled, model-based environments, formal learning and discovery environments form a continuum and begin to crossover with informal learning and play environments. This has positive implications for engaging "digital natives.”
