Education and career counsellors such as teachers and mentors face a daunting task – guiding students to make good academic and career choices is a challenge. On the one hand, you have confused students and anxious parents and on the other hand you face the lack of a system to navigate career options based on the strengths and interests of the student. In addition, standard assessment tests are now fast losing their usefulness and may not be the best tools in today's highly competitive and complex workplace.
But now there's a new way – ProTeen brings focus and takes a fresh approach to the standard psychometric assessment of intelligence and aptitude. Its proprietary PROMISE algorithm elegantly integrates aptitude assessments with individuality and interests drawing inspiration from three gurus in the educational field:
- Dr. Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory (Harvard University)
- Dr. John L. Holland’s occupational themes (RIASEC) of professions and vocational choice based on personality types.
- Dr. Benjamin Bloom’s revised taxonomy of learning objectives.
ProTeen’s PROMISE assessment and functionality is built as a unique mobile and web based gamified experience making it the world’s first analytics driven system that allows students explore their academic and career choices in a supportive environment. Further, ProTeen connects students to exciting internships, sponsorships and colleges.
Education and career mentors such as teachers and counsellors registered on the ProTeen platform will be visible to students and parents and can be approached for consultation. Once connected, mentors will have access to the student’s data and will be able to review and monitor their progress. Mentors can supplement ProTeen’s powerful analytics driven student insights with their own specialized and personalized advice. Such relevant and meaningful counseling strikes the right chord with students and parent communities, making the engagement more effective for all stakeholders.
