Careers, Finance, & Technology for the 21st Century

Careers, Finance, and Technology for the 21st Century

Have you ever asked yourself, "Who doesn't want to be a Millionaire?", "Will my future be in Jeopardy if I don't take school seriously?" or “Will my idea be the next one featured on Shark Tank?”   Maybe you haven't asked yourself these exact questions, but in this fun class we will examine these questions.   Join this class and become a “Survivor” in the real world.

We will use the career cruising program to determine our learning styles and take a career matchmaker to reveal careers that match our interests, goals, and talents.  We will then explore these careers to learn more about them. 

In the finance portion of the class we will learn how to manage our money to make the most of what we have.  We will create budgets, learn how to manage a checking account, and take part in a stock market simulation.

Technology will be infused in everything we do.  The following productivity tools will be introduced and used:  Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Presentations, Digital Storytelling, Multi-Media,  Web 2.0 tools, and Videos. 

We will have our own Shark Tank to explore our creativity and learn about how a business runs.
