My students need another laptop and case for the rolling cart to complete research for financial literacy and business projects. We need to gain 21st century technology skills.
My 11th and 12th grade students are studying small business enterprise and economics where they are applying their knowledge from math and English into real world applications. Using technology, such as a computer, to gain financial literacy, is critical to their advancement in life.
Our school is inclusive of students with special needs and is striving for rigor in the classroom which means our students need technology skills to be ready for the 21st century.
They need to be aware of how others use their money to invest, how businesses plan financially and grow their assets.
My students need a classroom computer to learn financial literacy. Students will learn how to select and track stocks online and create their own corporations. My students will be using the classroom computer to track stocks. They will select 5 companies to follow daily to understand commission and how the market changes. Students will also be working in groups to create companies to learn how to write business plans, use computer programs to graph supply and demand curves and understand cash flow. Currently we have two computers and that could make this project very difficult to complete during class time if everyone is waiting.
Your donations will help my students to explore current market conditions and how the financial markets influence our economy.
The skills they learn about how corporations work will hopefully transfer into their understanding of their own individual financial responsibility to manage their money in the future and be contributing members of societyRead More
