POOLS-M simulations

Airport is a simulation that can be used by students with a language competence around level B1 (European Language Portfolio).

The simulation can be played in groups with three to five students (if less than five in a group then some students will have to have more than one profile in the simulation).

The simulation is self explanatory; each student is given a text with a personal profile, the students read and inform the other group members about the content.

In 2005 We have continued to contribute new materials. During the project the teams came up with many ideas for simulations that would be suitable for vocational students. Built on a Dutch idea (Frans can Schaik) we have now completed a new simulation titled: "A Location for Best Practice Machine Tools plc" Since New Year we have adapted and translated  the simulation into Basque, Danish, English, German, Romanian, and Spanish. The students have to decide on a suitable location for a new machine tools factory, they are supplied with four options and have to compare taxes, infrastructure, available employees etc.
