Instructional Ideas

  1. As part of a research assignment, teachers can have students search for jobs that interest them using this app. Next, teachers can have students research the jobs to find potential earnings, the education required for the position, and the responsibilities a person with this type of job has. Students can report their findings by making a presentation using Haiku Deck, Prezi, or SlideIdea.
  2. Teachers can have students research an area where they would like to live and identify the type of industry located in that area. Next, students can research jobs available in that area using this app. Students can then compose a summary of their findings using Quick Office, CouldOn, or WPS Office.
  3. Teachers can have students conduct a general job search. Next, teachers can have students use the “filter” options to investigate how location, working hours, experience, company, job category, and salary impact the jobs reported. As they do, teachers can facilitate a class conversation by asking: (1) Is there a relationship between experience and salary? (2) How do you suppose the “category” option affects the job search? (3) From the main screen, is it better to search by job title, keyword, or company name?
