Favorites roundup: Top 5 Free Teaching Tools for Educators, Entrepreneurs, Parents
Free Resource Roundup.Here is our current top 5 round-up of favorite free teaching tools for educators, entrepreneurs, and parents. Want to get some good, solid information as well as shake things up a little? Consider the list of resources below:
SCORE is a well known mentoring program matching retired executives with entrepreneurs. Mentors and role models are tied to success in business. This can be a good place to start practicing the mentor relationship. http://www.score.org/index.html
This is the government’s one-stop source for business information. The entire www.Business.gov site has a wealth of resources, but the link below is singled out because it provides information about financing, including government grants and loans (a nice follow-up to our series on teaching the financial crisis. See Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4 of this series). http://www.business.gov/guides/finance/financing/index.html
See “Wall Street for Beginners” and “Virtual Investing”. This is a nice resource because of the access to PBS’s video content which creates a more interesting learning experience. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/crash/tguide/index.html?campaign=features_t
Not only is this free, winning students receive money! From an educator or parent’s perspective, the application is good practice for constructing a resume. It is also helpful practice for college applications as it asks about community service and other activities. http://youngentrepreneurfoundation.wordpress.com/2008/10/22/young-entrepreneur-scholarship-applications-now-available-online/
