Accompanying teaching resources

Running a Sandpit experience in your class is easy; simply send students the link, and Sandpit takes it from there.

However, many students benefit from understanding the goals, concepts and process in advance. Take a look at some of the teaching resources we provide to support your use of Sandpit including:

  • Powerpoint slides to present or share with your students
  • A 'How To Guide', which explains how to incorporate Sandpit into your module

QAA Mapping

"As an online business simulation Sandpit is designed to ensure that the students have an active and authentic learning experience. It creates student-led, subjective learning that draws upon effective multimedia communication to support the development of entrepreneurial effectiveness."
