Sometimes we can get lost in the day to day routine and “coverage” of topics and forget about our opportunity to impact students’ overall development. Below, I share a Shark Tank-style project done in Spanish IV that combines the technology unit with persuasive and entrepreneurial skill development.
With this project, students work in groups to come up with an invention that can help address a need in a community.
They work together to design a prototype and convince a panel of “investors” (teachers) that their idea is the most valuable and needed.
They are graded on: how well their invention addresses the needs of a community, how well thought out their prototype (details), the delivery of their presentation, how much they contribute to the group’s success, and how well they answer questions from the panel.
Do you have a bright idea, but don’t know how to make it happen?
Maybe we can help. This space focuses on how learning, innovation, and technology intersect @Riverdale. Where bright ideas are met with design thinking and implementation. This is NOT a space telling you to go paperless. This space will NOT tell you to use this device. This space is about identifying an objective, creating a concept, and utilizing various tools to turn a bright idea into a LIT experience.
