Introducing a pioneering and innovative VR and online experience that supports educators & students, facing a modern world
Education is the passport to the future, and tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Education is the foundation for the advancement of society, as well as for nations at large. As education systems are undergoing a transformation, adjustment and a broadening, coupled with the unique challenges of modern life, the creation of new jobs and opportunities is changing the way individuals formulate career preferences.
With such life-shifting modifications in place, career planning has become more problematic and confusing. Hence, there is a need to capitalize on career counselling, integrating it with virtual reality to bolster the decision-making skills of our youngsters. The implementation and use of numerous forms of technology has made the process easier for educators and students to understand the complexities of the modern world through immersive classroom learning.
VR has the potential to bridge the gap between education and practical learning.
VR uses immersive technologies with an objective to bring significant educational transformation, to make it better aligned to career preparedness.
LaunchMyCareer is a transformational career-success program that provides age-appropriate exposure to children from Grade 5 onwards, in an engaging way through immersive experiences.
A comprehensive VR inspired career discovery solution unifies career guidance and preparation into a seamless experience. LaunchMyCareer brings together educators, counsellors and experts to steer students along a career roadmap, under parental guidance, in a systematic, experiential and engaging way. The platform is backed by Dev Clever, a market leader in career development with a presence across the UK and Europe, and Veative Labs (Pvt) Ltd, a trailblazing organization that provides immersive solutions for enterprise and education in more than 20 countries across the globe.
Mr Ankur Aggarwal, Director, LaunchMyCareer, has launched this platform with a vision to create a world where everyone can manage, develop, and optimize their education and career path, at any stage of their life, to create a better future. LaunchMyCareer‘s VR technology supports the career counselling space in a way that helps learners experience their future career while exploring umpteen opportunities based on their unique skills and interests. The one-of-its-kind Career Explorer feature of LMC allows learners to envision a future and thus enables them to be better prepared for what that may entail. Such first-hand experience also empowers a learner’s decision-making process, while under the guidance of their parents and school. It thus addresses common concerns held by both learners and guardians, and helps them identify a clear career path, while understanding various career options. This unique exposure and in-depth perception guides students to be their best versions and lead happy and successful lives.
This career guidance platform allows students to discover a personalized career pathway to place them in careers that are best suited to them, using the latest technology.
LaunchMyCareer understands the efficacy of properly applying technology in the best way in student’s lives. From mobile phones to desktops, laptops to tablets, we are connected to both technology and each other, in one way or the other. Due to the ongoing pandemic, students’ dependence on technology has increased exponentially.
The VR edge of LaunchMyCareer assists and engages students to take their first step into career discovery. The idea is to give them a first-hand glimpse of their future profession by entering into the immersive experiences provided by LaunchMyCareer. They get to visualize themselves within a career by attaining sufficient knowledge of various jobs and workplaces. This gives them the upper hand, as they are able to comprehend what is appropriate for them, even from a young age. Digital natives connect with and see value in VR experiences with a gamified approach. LaunchMyCareer brings a fresh point of view to career guidance, making it enjoyable for children. This is in direct contrast to the more traditional method of administering psychometric tests that are cumbersome and boring.
It augments educators with a deeper understanding of each student, providing opportunities to extend their discovery and prospects for their future. The main benefits that LaunchMyCareer’s VR technology is bringing forth include:
- Students are not limited to text and flat images about careers. With LMC’s VR technology, students have the opportunity to experience the gamut of careers in the most real way possible.
- VR activates learners’ creative minds by providing them a 360-degree view of emerging and existing careers.
- Experiential learning is known to be one of the most effective ways of acquiring deeper knowledge and understanding. When applied to career guidance through VR, the impact is powerful and long term. Children feel more confident about their future.
- It leverages a highly retentive educational experience, as what we read may have low recall value; but VR promotes active learning, which is much higher on cognitive scales.
