Applying Research by Pivoting in Your Classroom

This site offers ways to use the learning strategy of "Pivoting" and allowing you help your student apply their research.

The term “pivot” in entrepreneurial thinking practice describes a change in strategy without a change in vision. This activity reinforces the importance of building the ability to pivot directly into the start of a project.

Pivoting helps students to identify and focus on the most valuable elements of an idea through a process of hypothesizing, researching, and modification.

Why is it Valuable?
Learning is a process of continually adding to our ideas, and modifying ideas that are based on flawed assumptions or incomplete information. Our ability to learn is frustrated when we become overly protective of our ideas, or start to see them as end points rather than stepping stones to more sophisticated concepts.
By encouraging students to continually test and revise their ideas as their projects take shape, we are arming them with a fundamental tool for lifelong learning.

Entrepreneurship 30: Teaching Franchises with Graphic Novels
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating

The students were starting a lesson on franchising and how it can be considered a form of entrepreneurship. We discussed the benefits and drawbacks of being either a franchisor or a franchisee. To engage the students into some heavier content I found a graphic novel, “Tales o f Garcon, The Franchise Players”, on the website Teachers pay Teachers. This was a great resource meant for business/ economics students. I found the first 2 chapters fit perfectly into an entrepreneurship course. The first chapter was a free download and examined the concept of franchising. It outlined the history of franchises, the players involved, discussed business terminology and ended in a dramatic fashion forcing the students to ask themselves the following:
• Potential risks involved in franchising
• Legalities of franchising
• Protection available to both parties

Guidelines to the Procurement Obligations of Domestic and International Trade Agreement
Rating

"A document titled Guidelines to the Procurement Obligations of Domestic and International Trade Agreement has been developed to house basic procurement obligations in one place. It provides information about Saskatchewan’s procurement obligations under the following agreements:

"New West Partnership Trade Agreement between British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba; Canadian Free Trade Agreement between all Canadian provinces, territories and the federal government; Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement between Canada and the members of the European Union;
World Trade Organization Agreement on Government Procurement; and, Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership between Canada and ten other Pacific Rim countries.

This document is a guide and should not been taken as legal advice, nor should it replace the specific procurement obligations outlined in each agreement. Nonetheless, a procuring entity that follows the guidelines should be assured that its actions will generally meet the applicable obligations of the trade agreements.

You are encouraged to become familiar with these guidelines and review your procurement policies with this document in mind."

Human resource or manpower planning is of great important in the general development and growth of organizations. Thus personnel and Human resources experts, managers and practitioners have now made it known to management that adequate attention be given to it with a view to ensuring better use of other resources especially capital. Organisations have also realized that with increasing competition and complexity in business, more time should be devoted to effective human resources planning to achieve desired goals. Furthermore organisations have known that not only is the overall cost of human resources high , that human element is complex, unpredictable and sometimes difficult to develop or change unlike capital that is relatively easier to acquire, manager or control.

Idea Canvases in Your Classroom
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

This site offers ways to use the learning strategy "Idea Canvases".

What is an Idea Canvas?
An idea canvas is a diagram that is used to design the strategy needed to execute an idea. Use an idea canvas to structure brainstorming sessions, particularly in the early stages of group projects.

There are nine interdependent sections on a typical idea canvas. In each section, there is space to describe a different factor that affects how the idea could be
developed and deployed.

Why is it Valuable?
• It is a highly visual, easy to use road map for how to improve and implement an idea.
• It provides structure and direction without being overly prescriptive. This is because it is organized around a series of fluid questions and relationships rather than rote instructions.
• It focuses attention on the influence of the context in which the idea will be viewed and used.
• It encourages discussion around the multiple forms of value offered by the idea.

Measuring SROI in Your Classroom
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating

This site offers ways to use the learning strategy "Measuring SROI in Your Classroom".

What is SROI?
Social Return On Investment is a measurement of the social value generated by a project or organization. This activity introduces a SROI chart and encourages students to consider the multiple ways they can both receive & generate value through a project.

Why is it Valuable?
Measuring SROI is a highly effective way of setting and assessing goals because it is:
• Comprehensive: it investigates multiple ways that the project/organization can generate value.
• Measurable: it establishes clear, observable criteria on which to assess that value.
• Participatory: success criteria are developed in collaboration with the people who are running the project/organization.
• Improvement-oriented: it measures impact based on the change that the project/organization is able to effect over time.

These same benefits can be applied to the way students establish and measure their learning goals.

Money Management may be defined as the process of managing money, including investments, budgeting, banking, and taxes. Managing your money is an essential life skill. When you know what you're doing, it really isn't so difficult. Once you've left home, the only person responsible for your financial health is you, so it's good to know the essentials. Managing your money can help reduce the stress levels that you experience throughout your life. It can help you to plan for unexpected events and expenses. A budget is a plan for spending and savings. It is a financial plan of income and expenditure which assists you in managing your finances. Subsequently we will learn about appropriate budgeting principles. Some learners make the choice and become entrepreneurs even while they are formally studying: they provide services such as barbering and manicures for a small financial return from their friends. This module will consider the qualities and the main tools of an entrepreneur.
