Cashtivity: An Online Platform for PBL Classrooms

August 7, 2015

In a project-based learning (or PBL) environment students explore a topic by solving a problem.  Earlier this summer I shared Cashtivity, a free online platform for PBL Classrooms. It can help students run their own business.  It provides kids with the tools they need to brainstorm. They can make decisions about running a business while working in teams.  Students can build entrepreneurial skills and they complete a task in a project-based learning classroom.

Cashtivity: An Online Platform for the PBL ClassroomsIn a project-based learning environment Cashtivity is an essential tool. It can be used for guiding students through the process of running their business and working with peers.  Cashtivity helps students develop a business plan. It can also help them grow in their understanding of financial math like projecting costs and budgeting.  Its online platform promotes collaboration and encourages students to problem solve as a team.  Cashtivity is a great choice for teachers looking to energize their instruction and incorporate technology tools into a PBL classroom.
