Students take “deep dives” into career pathways that most interest them and build knowledge, skills, and e-portfolio artifacts in those areas. As a student progresses through their chosen pathways they earn Digital Badges that represent the skills and achievements they have acquired. These badges bolster resumes and post-secondary education applications, giving a more well-rounded picture of a student’s knowledge and competencies.
