Ever wonder what it looks like working behind-the-scenes at a zoo, museum, construction site or TV studio? Would you consider a career as a physiotherapist, a makeup artist, a foreman or a legal adviser?

 

The Learning Partnership, a charity dedicated to supporting, promoting and advancing publicly funded education in Canada, has launched a series of 360° virtual reality videos to help students explore career opportunities in a variety of fields. The videos take students and teachers on an immersive tour of some of the most fascinating workplaces across the country.

 

An extension of The Learning Partnership’s Take Our Kids to Work Day, taking place on Nov. 2 this year, the video series is designed to give students a taste of unique and varied work environments as they contemplate future career paths.

 

Each 360° video can be viewed online via YouTube from any computer with Internet access. Users are also able to experience immersive viewing on their mobile phones using affordable virtual reality headsets such as Google Cardboard.

 

“Take Our Kids to Work Day is the biggest and best known career readiness program in Canada. We are excited to be able to enhance this experiential learning experience and bring unique opportunities to students across the country. With the use of VR technology, students are no longer limited to experiencing jobs available in their area. Our library of immersive videos allows them to explore a variety of careers and workplaces from any location,” says Jan Courtin, National Director of Student Programs at The Learning Partnership. “These videos are designed to supplement teaching resources and help students make informed decisions when it comes to their career planning.”
