Virtual Business for the 21st Century
My students need a camcorder to video tape their business commercials and a tablet computer to edit the footage on site.
Virtual business is an exciting way to teach students how business ownership is a gateway towards the American dream. This opportunity is often lost for inner-city students who have limited resources and experiences to guide them on this economic path. This path should be given to all our students.
Living in the heart of the inner-city, these students have a unique perspective on the value of education.
They use their experiences to motivate them to succeed. Our students are multi-ethnic and have form a unique bond that makes our school truly unique and a joy to work at.
Marketing is a key component of business today. Without it, business will fail. It is for this reason student's must create commercials for their virtual business projects. But lack of equipment is a problem with inner-city students. This should not be a limit to their creativity or participation in this activity. The camcorder and computer will enable students to show their true creativity and aptitude to succeed in the business world of today.
Without your support, true authentic learning will not be possible.
Please help these students maximize their creative and educational abilities. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
