GlobalEd Community Edition (CE) is an exciting educational simulation game in which students roleplay as delegates to an international summit tasked with solving a real-world, global socio-scientific problem. Working within teams as assigned countries at the summit, students work together to address the needs and interests of their assigned countries, but also develop a collaborative, multilateral solution to the complex global problems presented in GlobalEd CE scenarios.
Everything you need to play your first GlobalEd CE scenario is included in this Facilitator’s Guide: the Base Game Rules, a copy of the students’ Delegate Handbook and Player’s Guide, and a first Scenario to get you playing right away (The Crisis of The Frunze and The D’Arcy). Teachers implement the GlobalEd CE game with their class as a facilitator, with simulations that can last between 1 day to 1 month, depending on each teachers' goals.
Games can be conducted entirely virtually with existing classroom technologies. GlobalEd CE can be used with middle to high school social studies, science, or writing classes in face-to-face, fully virtual, or hybrid/blended classrooms.
GlobalEd CE is backed by decades of high-impact research centered around students solving real-world problems. Player interactions and activities in this game are founded on proven theory and evidence on what works in education via the problem-based learning (PBL) approach and its power to invoke authentic learning contexts for applying knowledge.
As a result, GlobalEd CE is designed to provide real impact toward student achievement in critical 21st Century skills, including the development of real-world understanding of disciplinary content, scientific inquiry skills, transfer of skills and knowledge to other contexts, student writing and argumentation skills, cross-disciplinary synthesis of concepts and information, digital literacy skills, cooperation and group collaborative work skills, and increased interest and confidence in social studies and science study and opportunities.
