Student Relates Knowledge Matters Simulations to Real World Professional Sports Experience
Caden compares her experiences at a professional sport event to what she learned through the Knowledge Matters Virtual Simulations. She enjoyed seeing how what she learned applied in the real world. Caden also explains how she is motivated to take her career in a certain direction thanks to the simulations.
The team went to the playoffs in the NBA and I remember doing the sports simulation for sports marketing and I'm looking at the concessions and I'm looking at the ushers and I'm thinking back, “I kind of did something like that. I controlled something like that” It’s really cool because you're seeing this small screen and small simulation put onto real life. I think it's so cool really having it right in front of you in a smaller version, it helps you. It helps you see the whole thing and you get to see what you like, what you don't like, and how to figure out these problems. I like making mistakes and trying to figure out, “Uh, what did I do?” And then restart it and then do it again and see if that changed something or what I can do more or better. And I think it's the whole point of it, really, problem solve it. It's a really good opportunity to look at different career options that expand in accounting. I think it's really cool.
