Due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) many schools are facing an unexpected need to move instruction online quickly. As you make your plans for the remainder of the semester, know that the ICONS team is ready to support you. ICONS online simulations engage students in playing the roles of stakeholders in a range of complex political and societal issues. ICONS simulations run completely online and are an excellent way to continue providing active learning experiences to your students, regardless of their location.

Going forward, ICONS online simulations will remain available and operational. We have the ability to set up simulations very quickly to support your changing needs.
