After having been nominated for the prestigious German government's awards and made it through to the finals of the 2019 International Business Learning Games Competition, ESCP’s serious game has been shortlisted for the “Oscars of education”.
“Moving Tomorrow - A Cultural Journey” was developed by Berlin campus Professor and Renault Chair of Intercultural Management Scientific Director Marion Festing with PhD candidate Tobias Schumacher, and has been shortlisted to compete in the Educational App category of the Reimagine Education Awards – the so-called Oscars of education. They will thus showcase their innovations to a global audience of 600 educational leaders at the 2019 Reimagine Education Conference on the 9th of December, with the winners revealed at the prestigious Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on the 10th.
As a reminder, you can read and watch (below) a presentation of the game.
"Moving Tomorrow - A Cultural Journey" is so successful at teaching intercultural skills, it has been expanded to new programmes and further developed with the help of Renault since it was submitted to the conference’s organizers.
In addition, ESCP is shortly going to release a licensed version of the game in order to offer it to a wider audience.
