I decided to continue my work with Content Connections as this is an business investment that I am planning to become a shareholder in by early 2017 and is the reason that I have enrolled in this course. I have no prior business knowledge and have been immersed in the online and blended learning world for the majority of my teaching career to this point. I have developed several courses and am fortunate enough to have the current CEO, Grant Ashlee as a mentor teacher during my career. I am excited about diving into this business world (for real!) with this educational venture that I feel passionate about and I am excited to see where we can take the company in 2017!

For my elevator pitch, I decided to create a short videoscribe as it is a tool I have previously used in teaching as a unit opener and find the combination of text and images holds attention for 1-3 minutes quite well (with high schoolers…no easy task)!

I decided to use Google Slides as I could always email the presentation to interested potential investors of offer the presentation in person as well. I like the easy to use and simplistic format of Google Slides.
Thanks for watching. All feedback is greatly appreciated and I look forward to viewing everyone’s work!
