My counseling partner and I planned a Virtual College/Career Week as we along with the rest of the world, are adapting to distance learning due to school closures. The fun and learning must go on! (Edited to add: And now that we are back to in person… these are still great ideas to add for Career Days!)
But let me be clear, we wanted to make this both low maintenance and high impact. Looking back, I think we succeeded (our week was March 30-Apr 3). The main points of our virtual college/career week are highlighted below with links wherever I could put them.
Check here for our school’s blog…. this is what our students/families saw for the week. Each of the days of the week are hyperlinked to the activity for the day.

Online Career Guessing Game (guessing Staff Members’ photos from when they were a child): * crowd favorite for sure!
Click above link to see the template for the game. Just delete my photos and have your staff send you their photos to upload.
ZOOM Meet Ups for the Week with Students:
Zoom activities are detailed at the following links. This ended up being the biggest part of our week. It was GAMES, GAMES, GAMES and engagement is the name of the game for distance learning.
