We are proud to announce that our MonsoonSIM CEO and Founder, Mr. Abdy Taminsyah, will be speaking at the EdTest Estonia 2021!
The EdTest Estonia 2021 is a much-anticipated online event that aims to provide a space where both educators and EdTech companies alike can gather together and share their perspectives and experiences to improve EdTools and enrich the teaching practices worldwide.
With EdTest Estonia 2021, companies from over 13 different countries—Estonia, France, Belgium, Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, Kazakhstan, India, Georgia, Ireland, Lithuania, Poland and Switzerland—have the opportunity to present their products, have them tested in different environments both nationally and internationally and most importantly, receive a report based on the teachers’ feedbacks that are collected after the field test.
MonsoonSIM’s involvement in EdTest Estonia 2021 will have our CEO and Founder, Mr. Abdy Taminsyah, showcasing the business simulation and gamification education platform’s ability to transform the way teachers teach and the way students learn. Instead of teaching with theory, teachers act as facilitators who configure their own course to suit the learners’ needs, and allow learners to conduct self-directed, experiential and integrative learning. For students, instead of learning by remembering, they will learn by doing and exploring, practicing and experimenting.
Educators will be introduced to the latest innovations and advancements in the fast-developing world of EdTech, and try different tools and take them back to their schools and education institutions to test out whether it would be the perfect solution to the struggles in their workplace or perhaps an enrichment to their workplace experience.
The EdTest will be conducted in 2 phases. In Phase 1, which is this August 14, the matchmaking phase between companies and teachers during summer and the first trial of their product and tool will take place. Phase 2, on the other hand, is after the beginning of the school year, making it possible for educators to test out the EdTech solutions they are interested in and give their in-depth feedback to the companies based on their personal experience. This will be conducted during the months of September and October 2021, the duration of which is set based on the agreement of 1 day, 1 week or even 2 weeks.
EdTest Estonia 2021 makes it possible for EdTech companies to achieve international impact and new market, approach new prospective customers and present their products. Moreover, EdTech companies can test their concepts and run a field test in an international context, and in turn, receive valid and extensive feedback and harvest new ideas.
For schools and educators, EdTest Estonia 2021 is the chance to meet fellow educators and build connections whilst trying out the newest and latest innovative products in the EdTech market. Schools and educators will be able to take the tools and products they enjoy back to their own schools and classrooms to try out with their own students. This enables expert feedback and discussions over potential modifications and improvements of the tools and products to be made, thus furthering the boundaries of EdTech innovations.
With countless fundamental business concepts applicable to any trading, distribution, eCommerce, manufacturing and service business, MonsoonSIM brilliantly wraps them all up into a business simulation with thirteen business departments. The available data live access for analysis and reflection over the learners’ business decisions gives autonomy for educators to teach the basics, such as accounting with retail, or to teach advanced level concepts, like capital budgeting.
MonsoonSIM looks forward to taking part in the upcoming EdTest Estonia 2021!
