We are in our second full week of the BizMovie Project. Today the students learned about the “Profit Equation:”
Revenue – Expenses = Profit(Loss)
This week we’ve also extended invitations for video chat interviews with young entrepreneurs around the globe. These connections were made possible by my Twitter PLN (Professional Learning Network) H/T to @RaisingCEOKids and @JuniorBiz. They have both created young entrepreneur twitter lists of remarkable business savy kids, teens, and young adults!
We have made similar connections in the past using Skype. Video chats allow my students to learn from a real, authentic audience. We were featured in Wes Fryer’s Moving At The Speed of Creativity Blog in February 2009 titled “Students Interviewing Students Over Skype During School.”
This video is an example of how we’ve used Skype in my classroom.

I am responding to the interested young people with an invitation to complete a Google Form I created to request additional information and provide additional information as needed. http://bit.ly/BizInterview
I know my students will enjoy speaking in-person to young entrepreneurs who can really provide the “voice” and inspiration for creativity and innovation. The interviews will be documented as podcasts and posted on our blog.
We Want To Hear From You!
