Student map interface
The Statecraft World Map is where all of the action happens! Students can log in via a desktop computer or a mobile device. The map illustrates the geographical layout of the world showing resource centers, deserts and mountains as well as the climate situation. The colored lines delineate territory zones belonging to each country. The icons mark cities, military units, landmarks and terrorist occupations. Once a student spies on a foreign country those cities and military units will also be exposed. Clicking on the icons reveals more information and there’s a detailed legend key to offer extra map guidance.
In the nav bars at the top students can access all of the critical information for their world as well as look at their intelligence data for other countries. They’ll be able to access their Diplomacy, Military, Intelligence, Domestic and Research activities as well as manage their Resources.
Statecraft IR creates situations where students are experiencing course concepts on a personal level and must apply the lessons they’ve learned in class to succeed. Along the way they’ll have questions about situations in the simulation like the security dilemma or the collective action problem that will become prime teachable moments.
Statecraft empowers you to transform your class into an immersive, unforgettable learning experience you’ll enjoy just as much as your students.
