This is a free online course covering globalization, career planning, financial literacy and entrepreneurship. It uses a variety of multimedia tools and can be used with other career planning tools to help students assess their career interests, explore career options, and create an education development plan.
Students can work with local educators to access the online course, which takes about four to six weeks (or approximately 20 hours) to complete. The course is designed to be facilitated by a local teacher and can be used independently or as part of an existing face-to-face course in career planning, business, or global studies.
Throughout the course, students are asked frequently to reflect on what they’re learning, to write their thoughts down as a continual refinement of their thinking, and to discuss those thoughts with other students-either in person or online.
