The Why & What of MonsoonSIM
MonsoonSIM is a unique pedagogy combining simulation and gamification. It focuses on a specific subject: business studies. MonsoonSIM allows students to participate in advanced, AI-powered business simulations that faithfully replicate the environments and challenges faced “out there” in today’s businesses.
There are multiple verticals and industries on which students can concentrate, including the service industry, management, supply chain, and many more. The platform gamifies everyday business practices, enabling students to work alone or in teams with other students as virtual work colleagues. Together, they make decisions and see where those decisions may take them.
If the things above align with your personal goals as teachers and educators, then it’s time to delve deeper into MonsoonSIM! In the videos below we will show you how you can facilitate MonsoonSIM games so your students will learn by doing! These videos will help you generate some ideas of how to implement MonsoonSIM into your classroom.
