What is Revas - Business Simulation Games?

Revas Business Simulations Games help teachers run practical business and entrepreneurship classes. Students will run virtual companies, make realistic managerial decisions and compete against one another for customers. How does it work in class?

Divide your group into teams that will start separate virtual companies (you can choose 1 of 19 industries ranging from School Cafe, through Travel agency to IT services). Teams run their companies making realistic business decisions. Virtual companies compete for customers with businesses in one market. Teams analyse market results, draw conclusions, solve business problems. There is no single right answer, each game is real entrepreneurship training for the players.

Suitable for K-12, GCSE, A-Levels and Higher Education.

my only concern is about the alignment with our topics and duration of the game. we can use shorten time but we cannot cover more topic to follow the game. it would be better if it can be designed specifically for high school content too.

Reply from Revas - Business Simulation Games:Dear Ceyda, thank you for all your suggestions, we will review all of them to see how we can make the experience better! Also, a lot of teachers have the same experience - simulations engage all students, even those who are not always so participative. It simply is fun to learn this way :)
CEYDA INANLI TAN found Revas - Business Simulation Games:
  • Does not significantly reduce teacher workload
    you should assess the results and give feedback to players. some of the content is not aligned with IB.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    the game played with teams, students should participate to the decision making process. during the international simulation game Revas enforcing and motivating students to keep on track.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    the student that is usually not participative, during the simulation involve in the team decision and act willingly.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    the strategies should be decided on may not be in their inquiry but they should search and ask to know about the context. besides they should activate their knowledge and use when creating the strategy of action.

Pedagogy

Certified Pedagogical Quality

Certified by Education Alliance Finland, 10/2019

EAF Evaluation is an academically-backed approach to evaluating the pedagogical design of a product. EAF evaluators assess the product using criteria that covers the most essential pedagogical aspects in the learning experience.
Passive
Active
In Revas Simulation the students are making decisions on running their own company. Each round requires completing several steps before finishing, which makes it impossible to pass through the content with no engagement. In order to progress and make smart decisions the learners are required to acquire and use new information. The new information is delivered on the simulation, but also by the teacher - the simulation is meant to be controlled by the teacher.
Rehearse
Construct
Revas Simulation requires utilizing learned content in open-ended problem-solving space. The game consists of several rounds, so it is possible to improve your predictions on each round. The pace of introducing new concepts is good. Each team can utilize individual tactics to solve the challenge and then compare, which of the tactics proved to be successful. The competition between teams and the discussion arising from the results is especially valuable.
Linear
Non-linear/Creative
The simulation follows linear, predetermined user progression led by the teacher, although during each round the teams can make choices freely. On each round the users will gain more possibilities and knowledge. The learning progress is directly comparable between teams since a good score directly reflects the understanding of content and attention to the choices - The learner must actively analyze and use the knowledge they gain during the game.
Individual
Collaborative
The game is instructed to be played in small teams with teams competing against other teams. Each team can act and progress autonomously, and the results are compared after each round to create competition. The solution encourages teamwork and collaborative analytical thinking and problem-solving, and in many cases working in teams makes the usage much easier, since each team member can take care of one area to manage (eg. HR, supplies and so on).
