New Jersey Vocational Life Skills Classroom Creates Website for Coffee Orders

Lauren Alvarez, a High School Vocational Teacher at the Edison Township Public Schools, uses the Digitability Work Simulation to operate a growing coffee business. Last year, with the help of her differentiated lesson plans, her students were able to create a website for their classroom-run coffee company. Using this website, students are learning how to advertise and take online orders to sell coffee, tea, and other drinks in their school. 

With Digitability Social Economy, a workplace behavior training model, each student in the class was able to expand their social and communication skills, while receiving instruction in both in-person virtual settings. As the coffee shop continues to operate, students will be able to learn more about customer service, problem-solving, interpreting feedback, and more.

As employees in the coffee shop, students received a virtual paycheck and learned how to manage their earnings, pay bills and make online purchases, using their Bankability accounts

Students used their comprehensive Digitability job training to package their professional assets that they will take with them as they prepare for today’s job market and independence.
