I’ve certainly been highlighting a lot of online video games recently. And I’m going to post about another one today.
In Sim Sweatshop the player simulates being a worker in an overseas sweatshop producing sneakers for the American consumer. This game, as some others I’ve posted about, fall into the category of “simulations.” These are basically role-playing games.
This one is accessible to Intermediate English Language Learners, and I’ve placed the link on my World History page under Toward the Twenty-First Century.
This game is a good language-development activity and also an excellent tool to help teach about economics and justice.
