Post-secondary and career opportunities discovery tool.

Overview

ChatterHigh is a post-secondary and career opportunities discovery tool. As of July 2015, it is only available to secondary school students in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. ChatterHigh is free to students, teachers and parents.

APPROACH 

 ChatterHigh provides a daily nine-minute activity that allows secondary school students to learn about college and career opportunities. The activity takes the form of a 10 question informative quiz, where students are provided with a link to do research and find the answers. The questions are supplied by post-secondary institutions and aim to make students better informed about the institutions themselves. For example, a question provided by one institution asked how many different programs the institution had. 

As students take the quiz, they gain points by clicking on the link to do research and correctly answering the question. Points allow students to enter drawings to win individual prizes (such as an Amazon e-Gift card), or can be converted to cash and donated. Students may also directly ask questions about the institute they are interested in, and faculty from that institute will usually respond in a few days. The questions and responses are shown on the website’s forum for everyone to read. Finally, students can see their overall ranking and statistics based on the quizzes they took, donations made and questions asked in forums. 

IMPLEMENTATION 

ChatterHigh is available on any modern browser with Java installed. 

PRICING 

ChatterHigh is free for participants and teachers to use, as Postsecondary institutions and Provincial organizations pay to use the site. 

WHO IS USING IT 

As of July 2015, over 10,000 students and teachers in over 100 schools in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada use ChatterHigh. The site will be available to the U.S. in the future.

I would like to see a few ways students who have no idea about careers might be able to figure out what they are good at - perhaps some sort of skill survey. I'd also like to receive updates when they go online and how many poi...
