Reflection of Learning
This class is business and technology, and in this class, we learn how to make and manage money, make apps, and make our own businesses. This class is valuable for our future because it teaches us how to make money through our own self-made businesses and how to make them effective.
One of the most major projects we have had in this class is The World Series of Innovation. The World Series of Innovation is where you and one or two others create your own business idea to try and help solve one of the top problems going on around the world. In order to participate, you have to submit a 60 second commercial in order to get your invention or app in the competition and will have a chance to win up to $1500 if your business ends up making it to the top.
Our first important task to participate in The World Series of Innovation was to think of a business idea that could help solve one of the world’s problems. Next we had to think of an idea that would help solve any of the world’s problems that we choose to try and solve. Then you explain what your app does, make a commercial, and finally submit it before the deadline to be entered. First we had to think of what our business name would be, then we had to think of what we would do and how it would help solve the problem. Next, we had to finalize it and make a 60 second commercial. Finally, we submitted everything we needed to be entered into the competition. Throughout the time I worked on the World Series of Innovation project, I learned how to manage my time better and I also learned how to use computers better. This shows me that I can learn how to do something fairly well when I observe.
During this project, I feel like I have demonstrated mastering skills needed in a career and college and representing myself and school. I feel like I demonstrated that I can make my own side jobs and businesses. I think I have also showed that I will work hard in order to make money. I feel like we could have been more creative about our idea and have communicated a bit more than we did. During the time we worked on our business, my partner and only worked on it during class and never worked on it outside of school when we could have.
The most important thing I have learned in this class is how to make my own apps and businesses and also how to manage the money you make from them. These skills can be important for my future because now I have the option to make my own business instead of working for someone else.
