Mentors about the Compass of Emerging Jobs
  • Dmitry Sudakov
    In creating the game kit, the developers took into account the experience of teachers who had created similar lessons on their own. Based on successful examples of teachers-innovators, they prepared not individual lessons, but systematized knowledge and materials on all sectors of the economy, so that teachers could use them in lessons to engage children, to provide career guidance, so that students think about the future, about what they want to become, and want to try new things.
  • Vadim Polyuga
    The game helps participants build their professional profile based on the skills acquired, lay a conscious life trajectory from age 13 to 40, and practice group decision-making strategies and tactics. "Compass" is already being used by general education teachers in some schools, including schools abroad. Children learn about the professions that will be in demand in 20 years, as well as how to prepare for them now. We release our game in a box so that any school can play it, whether we can conduct it in person or not.

    After the game, the children confessed that the New Professions Compass helped them better understand adult decisions. They had never even considered before what they would be doing in 10 or 30 years. Perhaps for the first time they understood that health is important, and to get a good job you have to study a lot. Play provides practical life experience. When we advise our children, for example, learn math - it will come in handy, they don't understand it. It's easier to play a game with them. Personal experience is much more valuable to them than any instruction.

    For adults - parents and teachers - the New Profession Compass helps to channel children's energy in a constructive way. "Kids in adolescence don't have an internal request, they don't know where to apply their energies. And an educator can create an environment and help them with experiences in which the kids themselves begin to understand what direction they can develop now."
  • Natalia Harding
    We became interested in finding out what new professions would be "in demand," to give our children food for thought on the topic of choosing a future profession. We believe that the "Compass for New Professions" can become a universal tool for identifying opportunities and options for future educational and career paths for our high school students. In the game children will be able to choose a specialty, then "change their mind" and play a new scenario of their development, gaining valuable experience and learning what it costs," the school explained. The game is designed more for the Russian educational system and will have to make adjustments to take into account the peculiarities of the educational and career guidance system in Great Britain.
  • Oksana Imvo
    After the game is over, there are many topics for discussion: the correctness of the decisions made, correction of the game strategy for the next round, a change of character and discussion of what else it could be. And the greatest wish that arises after the game is to play with children, to watch how their decisions and strategies are born and how the life path of their characters develops, in which, no doubt, there will be much from themselves. The game is exciting, you want to return to it more than once.
