This kind of instruction, helps students learn good business skills as well as how to manage their time and making sure they are on-task.

Students in the class created an app for students with autism, it is creating a lot of excitement and gaining the students national attention. The app takes virtual reality and takes it to a social situation, allowing students with autism to use a virtual reality headset and be immersed in the social situation to learn how to navigate it and learn from the app.
