Experiential learning is highly engaging for students. This presentation features PowerPlay Young Entrepreneurs, a real-world project that helps grades 4-8 students become design thinkers by creating their own business ventures. Students conceptualize product ideas, complete market research, make prototypes and finalize their products to sell at a school-based sales event. They also learn about social responsibility by donating a portion of their profits to charity.
This is a practical In-Service for educators that plan to use the program in their classrooms. Teachers will learn how to:
- Engage students of varying abilities with project-based learning techniques.
- Align with the new curriculum & integrate into different subjects.
- Make ADST meaningful & relevant.
- Help students develop a growth mindset.
- Support students in self-directing & assessing learning.
- Inspire learners to actively develop core competencies in order to achieve their goals.
Participants will receive the resource package at the session.
