WE WERE asked TO…
Create an online resource aimed at KS4 Business Studies students and their teachers. The activity needed to focus on key areas of the Business Studies curriculum whilst introducing the topic of IP.
SO WE made…
An educational activity to support teaching Business Studies through a game of cooperative and competitive play. Business Battle allows teachers to mix up their lessons and provide students with an alternative experience of the major elements within KS4 Business Studies.
The game demonstrates interplay between companies within a simulated marketplace, highlighting the importance of producing, protecting and marketing products successfully, whilst posing bonus questions taken from across the rest of the curriculum.
Working together with the Intellectual Property Office the game also introduces learnings around IP within a business.
The game is played across a class, with a number of teams forming companies, working on individual computers or tablet. A central smartboard or projector shows the complete game, allowing the teacher to control everything centrally.
as a result…
The game launched in March 2017 and has proved a hit with both students and teachers.
