Year 9/10 Business Excursion

Today I’m off with 12 students from my Year 9/10 Business class. They are taking part in the University of Southern Queensland’s ‘Funny Business’ competition. They had to come up with a small business concept, have a trading day and write a business plan. Today they present it in front of a panel of judges. The term has been very interesting, as they have showed great initiative by doing most of the planning, organising and coordinating themselves, with only a small bit of direction and input form me. The end results have been surprising and impressive. I’m not sure how this fits in with PBL (project based learning), but I think it aligns with that model quite well. 

I definitely need to investigate it a bit more and see how to change their assessments/units to focus more on self discovery, project based and cooperative learning. It has been a success thus far, and I’m rally excited to see how they fare against the other schools today.
