California Education Firm Mindevices Launches Innovative Instructional Entrepreneurial Course and Board Game Know Opportunity™.

Redding, CA (I-Newswire) February 8, 2013 - For the upcoming generations, adaptability will be key to a successful lifestyle, and entrepreneurs tend to exhibit such traits. The Know Opportunity program works to teach students the fundamentals of entrepreneurship in an applicable, real-world way through contextualized teaching.

Know Opportunity was developed as a classroom contextualized learning experience, giving students a taste of entrepreneurship. It includes a year-long curriculum through an online website resource that provides materials, training and student interaction, while the Know Opportunity Board Game is used to reinforce the concepts taught in class.

The program is designed to be flexible, so the curriculum and the game can be used together, or the board game can be used as a standalone product for students of all ages (middle school through adult). Some of the core concepts:

• Extemporaneous Speaking: Throughout the course (as well as being ingrained in the board game), students are asked to give "pitch sessions" to the class. These help students develop critical interpersonal communication skills through being able to clearly and articulately deliver a message to a specific audience, deal with impromptu questions and defend an idea or concept.

• Business/Finance Mathematics: In the board game, students keep track of their incomes and expenses on their income statements, teaching them valuable lessons about cash flow, balances and investments. In the classroom, students make financial decisions impacting their business and their bottom lines.

• Expository Writing: Students learn throughout the course how to identify target markets and potential business opportunities, which helps build the foundation of a business plan. Again, this reinforces the demanding critical, real-world skill of strong writing and articulation.

Know Opportunity is beneficial to students of any community, urban or rural, as it introduces the idea of achievable global commerce from any location - including through online business models.
