Another feature of the Career Connections Program is the Virtual Shop
The Virtual Shop shows each of the 15 projects from Project Book 1 and the 13 projects from Project Book 2 being built virtually. These can be used to show students a preview of the steps prior to going into the shop or to show specific steps that may be challenging for the students.
Lead-up exercises are provided and can be found throughout the Project Books. These exercises give students an opportunity to practice using a tool prior to its use in the building process. This gives teachers an opportunity to help the students build confidence prior to starting on the projects.
Each chapter in Project Book 1 and Project Book 2 provides three projects that concentrate on the same skills.
This gives students that complete their projects faster than their counterparts an opportunity to build a different project, enhancing the skills they are learning. For those students that are struggling, the opportunity to build a different project provides motivation and helps to build self-esteem.
Schools and other programs that use the Career Connections Learning Management System (LMS) also receive:
