For the first round of digital presentations, students create a 1-2 minute digital presentation utilizing a Virtual Business simulation.
The topic is solely up to the student. They can talk about the strategies they use in the simulation, or they can discuss
real-world business stories and illustrate the stories with sim exercises. Or, they can talk about their own lives, their knowledge
of business and financial literacy, and again utilize a Virtual Business simulation to relate to and illustrate their topic.
The tools that they utilize to create their digital presentations are up to the students. They can use still images and screenshots of
the Virtual Business sims or video captures of the simulations in action. Each presentation needs to include video footage of the
student presenting/talking about their topic. The overall style and format are completely up to the students as long as it includes a
video of the student presenting/talking.
The videos/digital presentations will be submitted to Knowledge Matters (starting January 4th) as a video link. It can be a
private/unlisted YouTube video link or a link to a video on Dropbox or Vimeo, etc.
