K-8: Connecting
the Future Dots

Welcome to the world of work.

The Myers-Briggs Company has teamed up with the World of Work Network to equip elementary and middle schools with the VitaNavis platform to guide students through structured education and career exploration that affords them a window into themselves and their future.

From the earliest ages, students are guided through a program of self-understanding where they can unearth their unique strengths, interests and values and apply that to their daily learning and activities. As they mature into later grades, these self-reflections start to inform their academic pathways giving students a powerful sense of agency enabling them to navigate their educational journey based on interests and their personalized trajectory to and through high school.

Students Will Explore:

Awareness Building

The RIASEC framework, an acronym for six personality traits — realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional — which help young people and grown-ups alike become aware of their unique strengths, interests and values.

...

General Occupational Themes, which are based on the RIASEC framework and provide information about how a student’s answers match with people who work in and are satisfied with particular jobs.

...

54 different careers between K through 8th grade based on the RIASEC, including real estate agent, paralegal, dietitian, reporter, graphic designer, sociologist, urban and regional planner, financial analyst and more.

...

Lessons and activities around those careers across four levels — exploration, simulation, meet a pro and practice — which all work together to help students attain the skills and knowledge to prepare to make future educational choices and career decisions.

...

With the Student Success Profile, powered by the CPI 260 assessment, how their own personal styles intersect with how they learn, and then assess, understand and maximize their strengths by comparing their results with data gathered from people and leaders who achieved their goals.
