In maker we are starting to look into ourselves. Using the app myBlueprint my class mates and I have been research our learning styles and other characteristics. The app itself is used more on the planning side because that is the thing a highschooler needs as he begins to think about his future.
At first I was a little sceptical of how the website gathered its data, but I soon realized that you could use the information on a wider scale. Some things, could not be trusted like the job suggestions. I personally didn’t get anything outrageous, but one of my friends was suggested to be a meat packer. This really made me sceptical of the app in its entirety, but some parts seamed to work right. One part of the website that did do a reasonable job was its learning styles suggestions. The website gave you a survey to fill out, and then was able to show the percentage of each leaning style.
How does knowing ourselves better affect our career choices and opportunities?
How does developing our self-awareness help us to make life and career choices?
How can we develop our skillset for continuous improvement and lifelong learning?
I chose personally to focus on the last question because then I could talk more about my resent discovery of learning styles. When I finished my keynote, I realized that I had done lots or research on leaning stiles, but hadn’t focused on me and what I wanted to do to as my career.
luckily enough, the next part of the project let me dive right into this uncertainty. For the next part of this project, I gathered information on my post secondary education. At this point in time I am veering towards Architecture as my chosen path, but I’m not entirely sure if that is what I want to do. When creating the graph, I decided to brake it up into eight different sections.
This would really give me the clarity to see what path I could possibly take later in my life. I was surprised especially by the differences in salary, and prerequisites. In this project I learned all about planning for my future and the possible paths I could take. Even though, this website filled me with skepticism I still believe it has done its job. This is definitely the most daily life relatable project yet, I cant wait for more
