Principals and Administrators
Here is why principals and administrators adopt GoVenture district-wide
Education and a desire to learn are key ingredients for success — both in school and life
A student’s desire comes from interest. Interest comes from understanding. Understanding comes with experience. Students are far more likely to participate in class discussion and ask insightful questions when they understand not only the how, but also the why. Lectures and textbooks become instantly transformed into valued sources of information when supported with real-world experience.
Many subjects are difficult to learn
Teaching subjects such as business, entrepreneurship, marketing, personal finance, investment, and life skills requires much more than conveying facts: it requires imparting an understanding of how to manage complex inter-relationships, decision-making with incomplete knowledge, and risk — all in real time.
Experience is the best teacher
The more experience your students have, the more likely they are to succeed. Unfortunately, gaining experience in the real world is too costly and time-consuming, and conventional teaching methods, like textbooks, courses, and seminars, fall short because they do not provide life-like experience.
GoVenture provides years of experience, in minutes
GoVenture educational games and simulations are built upon the foundation of experiential learning - an approach that cognitive experts consider the fastest and most effective way for people to learn. GoVenture programs immerse you in highly visual and interactive environments in such rewarding ways that you feel both intellectually and emotionally engaged in the experience - as if you were living it. Similar to how pilots are trained using flight simulators, GoVenture enables you to learn by doing in realistic, yet risk-free environments.
Suitable for all instructional approaches and levels
GoVenture has been designed to be suitable for a variety of instructional approaches and levels. Whether the need is to create a completely new curriculum or to enhance an existing one, GoVenture offers a successful and valuable experience for instructors and learners, in youth and adult education.
GoVenture programs are versatile. Unlike most other educational resources, GoVenture can be used in a variety of courses and initiatives, including business, marketing, entrepreneurship, accounting, personal finance, investing, career, family and consumer sciences, economics, math, and more! The growing GoVenture product line offers a variety of exciting educational experiences.
Popular with students and teachers
There are many stories to tell: students arriving early to class and leaving late just to use GoVenture; teachers encouraged by a change in attitude with students at risk; students engaged in their learning and eager to ask insightful questions spurred by the real-world experience that GoVenture provides. GoVenture speaks to students at all levels — whether book-smart, street-smart, or somewhere in between. And it’s perfect for teachers as well — it includes everything needed for easy integration into any course or curriculum. GoVenture provides an encouraging foundation for educators who may be new to teaching their subject, and a perfect curriculum enhancement for veteran educators.
