2021 #VWEDU: DTA: Career exploration: Nepris connects students to real-world career paths. Can virtual worlds play a role?

Career exploration:  
Nepris connects students to real-world career paths.  
Can virtual worlds play a role?
Virtual worlds can provide safe and easy access to simulated environments for any career path.  That may have advantages over a virtual visit by an expert who can tell about the career and show slides.      

Who would be interested?

Career exploration



Is Nepris a school?

  • A virtual world can live in most laptops.
  • It does not go away when the class ends
  • It works with remote or in-school learning or both.
  • You can give home assignments:
  • " Show what you learned to someone in your family and interview them about it."
  • You can give team assignments:
  • "Work with your team to write a report on this."
  • It can respond to actions and record them:
  • "Go there are do the shut-down process you saw demonstrated."
