The goal of SkillBott is to give students the ability to create, communicate, collaborate, analyze and problem-solve in any workplace environment.
SkillBott is a blended learning model that allows the student to control the time, place, path and pace of learning. The lessons utilize multiple modalities to engage students to express their feelings, experiences, knowledge and ideas. Students will participate in role playing, group exercises, discussion forums and research projects. It is through this process of situational observation, direct participation, individual reflection, and group feedback that your students will learn what employers will expect of them when they enter the workforce.
Not every student learns at the same rate or in the same way. SkillBott is designed to give you maximum teaching flexibility so you can reach all your students. You can choose the traditional classroom led instruction model; offer it as individualized or self-directed instruction; or deliver it virtually with a career coach or teacher as an online class. Each of the 6 courses includes teacher lesson plans, grade books and concludes with a final project or exam. The volume and variety of material available allows the teacher to select the activities that best fit their time allotment, student needs or special interests.
The Supplemental Course Academy (SCA) is a state funded initiative that offers students the ability to enroll in high school credit courses that may not be offered by the school that they attend. These courses and the course providers have all gone through an intensive review and approval process. SkillBott is an approved provider and offers three virtual high school courses that focus on career preparation.
