Bouncing from project to project, we did a lot this week. From the Google Doodle Project, to the yearbooks, and the NHL drafts. I appreciated having class time to work on these projects this week and I found it very productive. I can't wait to see what our classmates will create for the Google Doodle but as well as the Minecraft 150 challenge. It would be amazing if one of our classmates won one of these contests and the thought of winning is what is motivating me the most.
Its the week before Easter break, and though it is only a three day week, the amount of work we are doing doesn't change. After wrapping up our first ELS assignment, we are quickly getting started with our next one. We are using Flipgrid this week to talk to Dan Boria and to learn a bit about his career as an entrepreneur. When I read about Dan Boria's crazy stunt with the balloons and the lawn chair, I was completely blown away. I wonder if he did his stunt to gain publicity to his brand or if it was just something he has wanted to try. I hope he talks to us about his experience as the "balloon guy" because I am very curious about it. The unique entrepreneurs we have met have made Business Tech 09 a class full of new learning experiences and challenges. I enjoyed this type of learning this week and that made it all worth it.
Our first Flipgrid project has come to an end. We have watched all the responses from Kelly and CJ. When I watched them I felt so jealous. Seeing the blue waters and the sand on the beach looked truly great when you are surrounded by snow in freezing cold temperatures. Besides seeing the beautiful weather, I also enjoyed listening to what our entrepreneurs had to say about running a business and life in Mexico. Hearing how the Mexican peso affects entrepreneurs was especially intriguing. I thought it was interesting how CJ used the low Mexican peso to his advantage. Hearing him talk about this made me think of how a business has to adapt to situations in the economy. Being able to have our questions answered by a real entrepreneur in mexico was definitely better then any worksheet or textbook assignment. I can't thank you guys enough for the time you spent to talk with us. I appreciate the passion you have for your business and I think it was very informative and inspiring. I hope you can inspire more students to follow their dreams and persue their passions.
