About the Detective Pad
The Detective Pad (Dpad) functions as a chronicle of students’ progress in the game, a rewards system, a career database where students can learn about different occupations, a record of personal insight and development, and a portfolio for storing and sharing their work.
To familiarize students with their Detective Pads (Dpads), Jill prompts students to answer a question about themselves. Students’ answers are saved in the About Me app of their Dpad.
Students can return to their Dpads from the Career Town map to review or change their answers, or to answer new questions as they become unlocked.
