Lesson Prerequisites for Students

Many of the lessons have prerequisite activities in Xello that students must complete before they can start the lesson. For example, in order to start the Learning Styles lesson, students must have completed the Learning Styles assessment and have at least 3 saved careers.

This information is used to personalize the lessons so that students can engage with and reflect on content that is meaningful to them, such as their own assessment results and saved career and education interests.
