Version Choices Give Students Individualized Experiences

Replicated Reality | Age Appropriate Version Choices

One of our challenges in providing content and curriculum for the program currently is the need to make the platform universal for all users – there is no differentiation between a 2nd grade classroom management system and a 10th grade transition program.  It is next to impossible to provide content to all users at all times without becoming overwhelming, which is why we will be offering Version Choices in Phase II. The four initial versions are included with all purchases, and schools can decide which version each individual student will experience.  The chosen version will present the functionalities of the program in an age-appropriate manner and will provide the relevant tools and activities for the students.  We have recommended grade levels for each version; however, schools can decide what is right for their students.

How do Version Choices Improve the Experience?

  • Allows the program to deliver the right lessons, tone, and tools to the right students. 
  • Opens up the ability to offer full curriculum, lesson plans, and activities based on the chosen versions without overwhelming the student, the teacher, or the administration. 
  • Offers teachers the opportunity to provide an individual and appropriate experience to EVERY student.

The included Career Day curriculum can guide high schoolers through the process of exploring jobs, completing job applications, and budgeting that income for a real-world view of life.
