Online Games for Teaching Business Concepts and Ideas



JA Titan Game for High School Kids to Learn Business Concepts.


Here is a list of online games and related items that I presented at the Fall 2009 Business Teacher Seminar in Grantville, PA.

Hotshot Business Game (Created by Disney)

Design Considerations for a Cell Phone (at Edheads.org)

Explore environmental and business impact with Energyville (by Cheveron)

Download educational objects on topics of Business, Accounting, Entrepreneurship and many related topics at WISC-Online (Wisconsin Online Resource Center)

For up to sixth grade check out Planet Orange for financial information and advice (sponsored by ING Direct)

Brainpop is also another good source for small, focused information on a number of topics including financial and economic subjects.

For something aimed at high school seniors, undergraduate and graduate students check out Industry Player.

For some informational but fun videos on financial topics, check out CommonCraft.

JA Titan is a business simulation for high school students. During game play, students must run a manufacturing company and master six key business decisions: price of product, production levels, marketing expenses, research and development costs, capital investment level, and charitable giving. (The game is now under the watchful eye of Junior Achievement.)

If you happen to be French or speak French, you can try your hand at balancing France's budget at Cyber-Budget.

Better Business Choices let's you choose from a number of business paradigms and then make choices and see how they impact the organization.

And check out a business tool of the future with ProtoSphere (by Protonmedia)

*UPDATE also, of course to teach keyboarding skills, you might want to check out Typing of the Dead.

Here are the slides from the presentation:

I didn't know that there are Download Games discussing and teaching business concepts. I only knew games for logic, math, solving problems, etc. I find this article absolutely interesting. Thanks.
