Context of the project

The global financial crisis has highlighted the important role played by the education in promoting the employability and facing the challenges due to the global competitiveness. The partnership aims at implementing one innovative training practice (Business Game-BG) and transferring it from the applicant's country to the other ones and in particular from the higher education to the VET (EQF level 4 – 5). Moreover it aims at encouraging a possible development of the practice in the LLP and the setting out of pedagogical solutions based on ICT.


The project

The project addresses three objectives:

•  Innovative and attractive instrument: B.G. is a simulation and role-playing game which has been specifically designed for young people where the user can learn how managing a small company; it can be used by secondary schools to help the students to face a real working environment and to acquire the following competencies: decision making, problem solving and team working

•  Business Game is not simply a game but it will become a learning unit to be presented together with a guide; such guide will enable to set out learning outcomes in terms of KSC which should match EQF descriptors

Business Game will be considered as an innovative training toolt: BG's learning model is based on the experience; indeed the student is not passive but he/she plays an important role since he/she collaborates with the teacher and the other virtual students.

Target group

The target groups are students and teachers who are operators which are directly involved in translating and adjusting the Business Game.
