Incorporate these invaluable entrepreneurial skills seamlessly into your classes, empowering students to not just learn about entrepreneurship but also embody an enterprising mindset. Imagine the impact: young entrepreneurs armed with confidence that they have the skills they need to be successful in their entrepreneurial dreams.
How Teachers Use JAKAPA:
Teachers will have their own accounts to view all of their students' work and progress. Student rostering is simple using an Excel spreadsheet. We recommend giving students 10 minutes of class time daily, Monday through Friday, to complete the weekly challenge. This can be done on our mobile app or web platform using a phone, tablet, or computer.
Additional Usage Notes
Grading is made very easy as each student's engagement points towards the weekly challenge are easily visible.
JAKAPA is an excellent support for group project activities as customizable small group peer assessments can be delivered and collected to the students easily directly through the platform, this allows for students to measure each other's skills safely and anonymously.
