DIGITALIS Game-based approach: Serious game – Intellectual Output 2

The serious game “DIGITALIS – Develop a sustainable business on Mars with your team!” builds on the key goals of sustainable developments, cultivation of entrepreneurial mindsets, and empowering digital skills. The proposed game aims to connect the learners with the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, sustainable development, and everyday life situations, providing them the ability to implement in real life the skills practiced in the game including problem-solving, critical thinking, decision making. Through the serious game, the learners will learn by doing, they will be responsible for their actions, and they will learn from their mistakes along with the feedback provided by the game based on their actions.

The goal of the game is to for the students to develop a sustainable business on Mars. The students must follow all the steps for the establishment of a startup business on the red planet, having in mind the sustainable development goals and long-lasting prosperity. The students will have to overcome major challenges such as sustainable development and economic crisis that require planning and prioritizing, decision-making, and critical thinking. The game is at the final development stage and will soon be tested and implemented in primary education.
