To maximize impact of these resources, the Program in Cognitive Studies for Educational Practice has focused on just two goals. First, it has supported research that either applies results of cognitive science to improve current education, or clarifies the mechanisms of a problem of recognized and demonstrated importance in practical settings. Second, through its postdoctoral fellowships, the Program has sought to attract high-quality new talent to this field. This emphasis on mechanisms of learning and knowing is reflected often by explicit models of knowledge with corresponding instruction designed to enable learners to build that knowledge.

If the simulation behaves like the person did in the same problem situation, then the skills and knowledge built into the simulation, and the rules the simulation uses to solve the problem, provide an explanation or theory of how the human cognitive system solves the problem. , Siegler and Shrager 1984).
