The students were guided through the beginning stages of the platform. The class ended with students swiping through Path, the fun personality quiz that gauges their who they are, suggests careers based their personality, then suggest the college majors to get them there.
“After the class, I had several students come up to me to ask questions about college readiness and learning about their career options now,” says Fang. “They were interested and engaged in their own college planning. I’m glad we got to do this before winter break. Now they can go home and keep pursuing their own college planning on their own.”
