Detective Pad Apps
There are six different apps that students use to build a personal profile, collect clues, view the people they meet throughout the game, and gather stickers, art, and badges.
This section of the Dpad contains three different apps:
- My Profile – In this app, students build their personal profile by answering Detective Jill’s personal reflection questions about their interests, strengths, family, and other details.
- My Files – In this app, students can upload documents, photos, and other files that provide evidence of their learning, interests, and career/life exploration and development. A text field allows students (with the help of a teacher or parent) to add a note to each artifact.
- Jobs I Like – As students read the profiles of Career Town’s workers in the People app, they can indicate which jobs they like by clicking the happy face under the worker’s picture in the file. Jobs that students have indicated they like are saved in this app
This app contains the occupation profiles of all the characters in each of the 6 career pathways in the game. Students can indicate which jobs they like by clicking the happy face under the worker’s picture in the file.
This section contains the notes that Ernestine has left at each location.
With this app, students can create scenes using the stickers they’ve earned by completing the mini-games. There are 6 scenes that students can use, each corresponding to one of the locations/career pathways.
This is where the artwork that students create at the art gallery is stored.
Students earn a badge after they complete each location activity. Badges correspond to the 6 career pathways: health, creative, nature, business, building and fixing, and helping.
