Research demonstrates that students with ideas about careers they would like to explore by 8th grade are more likely to succeed academically in high school, and in their future careers. My Scary World was created to aid in the career exploration process.
My Scary World is a computer lab or classroom experience that allows students greater opportunities for exploration. Student data is collected over the course of a school year, indicating areas of student interest based on their interaction with the My Scary World website. This information is filtered into individual student profiles which can be a powerful tool that can be shared with the student, educators, parents and high school counselors to help each student make more informed decisions about meaningful high school course work that aligns with college and career goals.
Skyline College has partnered with My Scary World to provide this cutting edge platform for local educators to implement engaging and innovative project- based interactive exploration tools to their middle school students.
My Scary World will be at the Bay Area Entrepreneur Center of Skyline College on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 to teach educators how to use this online platform to encourage middle schoolers to start thinking about their future. This event is designed to equip educators with 21st century tools to help students identify career goals, innovate, and translate their big ideas into reality.
Join us for this very valuable and informative event to learn how to best educate your middle school students in thinking and planning for their futures. Get more information about the My Scary World Platform.
