Simulation Toolkit

John Hunter’s TED talk on the World Peace Games (https://www.ted.com/talks/john_hunter_on_the_world_peace_game), brought the concept behind the use of simulations to teach to the global stage, introducing the concept as a unique and effective program to increasing the impactfulness of learning certain topics.

Will Bellaimey, a history teacher at Riverdale Country School, has been using simulations to teach history and civics in his Middle School classes. Over time, he has developed a compelling framework to help teachers in all disciplines develop their own simulations to improve learning.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in using or learning more about this framework.
