Wharton-QS Reimagine Education Awards 2021
Announced: 2021’s educational ‘Oscar’ winners – Peaqs takes home an award!
London 10th December: 2021’s most exciting, effective new approaches to teaching and learning have been announced by QS Quacquarelli Symonds and The Wharton School, after a gruelling competition comprising eight months, 1350 applicants, and five rounds of close expert scrutiny: the Reimagine Education Awards.
Danish edtech, Peaqs, is proud to announce taking home the silver award in this prestigious competition in the Business Education Category. Noting that the award was also a hybrid learning award, co-founder at Peaqs, Peter Martin Holst, says:
‘For a startup the importance of an international recoginition of this kind cannot be understated. We are not only proud but also thankful to be able to get so far in a competition with so many other brilliant edtech platforms and solutions competing. Being able to fetch a prize like this after being online for only a year with our new platform version is truly amazing – a huge thank you to all the teachers and institutions for bringing Peaqs into their class-rooms and hybrid learning environments.’
Peaqs is a learning game platform that combines a project development process with a virtual stock market engine for real time valuation and peer feedback. It was originally designed for teaching entrepreneurship and running pitch competitions but has proved to be suitable for learning across many business, design and technical subjects. Being agnostic to the curriculum taught and customizable in its process by for instance time-boxing game-phases Peaqs is not only appealing to higher education but also lower levels of education such as high school.
