Based a federally funded project on implementation of 1:1 computing in 28 schools, Digital Wish designed a technology curriculum to comprehensively cover the NETS standards. See the complete series here.

In the Business Development Unit, students will brainstorm what makes a business successful, evaluate company websites, and create a business plan of their own. In the last two lessons of the unit, students will use Microsoft Publisher to create a brochure promoting their mock-company.

Business development is an important lesson for students to understand how our economy works, and in turn, how they manage their own finances later in life. If an eductor can tie future workforce training with classroom technology and real-life skills, the results are often astounding. Towns and cities want a strong economy, and most would like to see their students graduate and stay close to family, start companies, or just to be productive members of the community. With proper training at an early stage, students can become business-savvy, have a sharp eye for website detail, and learn how to communicate in a valuable work-related environment.

This unit is another way of gaining community support, where the town can see real-life skills develop quickly using modern technology and Web 2.0 applications. It is common to have students share ideas with relatives for improvement of their family business, or even to go on to create a plan to make their business dream a reality. Student collaboration works very well here, and students can find support and encouragement from fellow mock-businesses in the classroom (even promoting each other!).

This Unit contains an instructor preparation checklist and four important lessons:
  1. Business Exploration
  2. My Business Plan
  3. Brochure and Creation
  4. Sharing and Critique


Each lesson includes:
  • Introduction - An introduction provides the Rationale/Context of the lesson, correlation to NETS Standards, objectives, time and materials needed
  • Procedures- The Procedures section details the lesson plan, provides discussion points and teacher tips
  • Conclusion - The Conclusion section covers assessment, accomodations, and closure/connections
  • Quick Lesson Guide - The Quick Lesson Guide is your tool for quickly accessing all you'll need for the lesson including links to the presentations used during the lesson


Here's what you'll receive when ordering this Unit:
  • Full Color Curriculum Unit Book
  • CD-ROM and web portal access to:
  • Edit ready worksheets
  • Teacher's Quick Lesson Guides
  • Certificates of Success
  • Classroom-ready lesson presentations
