Board games as teaching and experimental tool

Michał Mijal held a presentation during the international conference “Standing Conference on Organizational Symbolism” (SCOS). His presentation “Entrepreneurs from the past – teachers of the present. A history recreated in a boardgame” covered the topic of a use of modern board games as teaching and experimental tools based on a case study. The Peasant School of Business game has been used for several years now to teach secondary and high school students basics of economics, entrepreneurship, clusters and cooperatives in form of a real-time strategy game played during a single or double class. The tool is extremely flexible and therefore its application ranges from simple class experience through tournament-like events to pure experiments as such. The presentation covered its uses and outlined possible applications to numerous purposes.
