An innovation within an innovation! The teacher receives a CD (or can access it on the Net) & one day’s training. The CD outlines in full an entire project on deciding which of the 2 franchise businesses is the most viable. The CD contains pupil & teacher resource material, assessment rubrics, instructions, voice-over & visual tutorials. The pupils are divided into 2 teams and each team, (after due research) has to prepare a marketing presentation (PPoint, movie, stop-frame animation, photostory etc – any digital format) which the class assesses. Final winners go forward to the regional competition and so on until an international winner is identified. Prizes & training are sponsored. These provide the impetus for teachers & pupils engage &, hopefully, allow them to win (& use) more technology.
