Research suggests that children’s early career aspirations are highly predictive of their career choices as adults. But because children can only aspire to, and picture themselves in, jobs and fields that they know about, it is essential that they be exposed to a wide range of occupations. In this webinar, participants will explore creative ways to help kids connect their current interests with future education and career possibilities; explore a variety of careers through video, search engines, games, books, and interviews; and create concrete examples of their future selves in interesting and satisfying careers. Emphasis will be placed on ways to develop and identify meaningful, engaging, developmentally appropriate, and student-directed activities.
