Are they Ready to Grow? Infuse a Growth Mindset along with Technology into the Entrepreneurship Course to Improve Engagement!


Entrepreneurship brings the business education courses together and makes it a "real world" experience. This is great! However, having a curriculum to teach anything is helpful, but are your students willing to learn? In this session, Jamal Maatuka shares his successful methods of engaging students along with his mobile app "Fanpalooza" from his entrepreneurship class. Diane Mahinda provides additional entrepreneurship curriculum and engagement resources.
