Online simulation games follow the basic didactic idea of traditional simulation games but offer additional advantages through their online environment. They enable participation that is independent of location and time and are flexible and modular in application. Our online simulation games are technically based on the platform Senaryon, developed by planpolitik, a unique platform for the development and execution of online simulation games. Senaryon’s modular structure allows for customized offerings by integrating various content and adapting the gaming environment to the respective target group.
Each simulation game on Senaryon is divided into specific phases in which specific tasks must be completed. The user interface includes team chats, collaboration spaces, information, voting tools, and a task system that can be adapted to the desired learning format and duration. Senaryon is browser-based and can therefore be played on computers, tablets, or smartphones at any time and anywhere. The clearly structured game phases allow participants to fully focus on their tasks.
Senaryon serves as the technical foundation for the required services. Modules such as chats, role descriptions, or voting tools can be freely combined to create the desired simulation game. Through the moderation area, the game management and, if applicable, the accompanying teacher can track the course of the game and the activities of individual students.
With Senaryon, we bring interactive political simulations to schools in Bavaria. On behalf of the Bavarian Center for Political Education, we have developed four simple planning games that can be used free of charge by teachers in Bavaria.
Unionslabor is a unique digitally-supported simulation game for European education. Nearly 20,000 people have already played Unionslabor. With just three clicks, you can create your own game on unionslabor.de and get started!
Free role-playing games for interested citizens in the public libraries of Berlin. The Association of Public Libraries in Berlin offers three role-playing games developed by us about the work of the district assemblies in Berlin.
Security policy simulation: The “Conflict in the Gagonian Sea” strategy game is one of the most complex simulations on our Senaryon platform. Participants can influence the dynamics of this conflict simulation through over 500 different measures.
Organizational development through the strategy game “New Work” - the simulation of a change process in a company or organization: Negotiate different options as a team, play them out, and test the effects.
Political simulations from the Hessian state parliament with our platform Senaryon. School classes and other youth groups simulate the legislative process and experience firsthand and interactively how politics is made.
Senaryon is already in use at over 20 universities worldwide! The flexible usage models allow for tailored solutions to the needs of universities and students, including a task and evaluation system.
Be a minister for a day and take a seat at the cabinet table - our simulation game at the Open Day of the Federal Government makes it possible! Interested citizens play a digital supported cabinet meeting in a maximum of 75 minutes.
Senaryon as a virtual think tank: For an international expert conference on hybrid threats in Helsinki, we set up Senaryon so that experts could input, comment, and vote on their recommendations.
The “Climate-Neutral City” simulation in eight different languages at schools worldwide! From Czech Republic to India, the Goethe-Institut carries out the games on Senaryon with local teachers.
