Designing a Website Work Simulation
Workplace Partner: Alinko Marketing
In this Work Simulation, students work together to plan a website project. They will not only hold positions like Multimedia Manager, Content Editor, and UI Designer, they will also learn collaboration, teamwork, and problem-solving skills.
Phase 1 — Planning the Project
In Phase 1 of the Level 1 Work Simulation, students begin the planning process by brainstorming their topic and organizing their ideas for the website they will build together. Then, each job role is reviewed so students can identify the job they would like to apply for.
Phase 2 — Working Together
In Phase 2 of the Level 1 Work Simulation, students obtain their first job and begin working together to complete their project by the assigned deadline. They will need to problem solve, think flexibly and communicate using expressive and receptive language.
Phase 3 — Demo Day
In Phase 3 of Level 1 Work Simulation, students plan and prepare their first work product demo. Students learn to showcase their work and discuss their problem solving and collaborative process. The Executive Team provides critical feedback for student growth. Students will use their receptive language to interpret feedback and apply it to their next iteration.
Phase 4 — Building Your Resume and Interview Skills
In Phase 4 of Level 1 Work Simulation, students draft their first resume which includes their experience in their first Digitability Work Simulation. Additionally, students learn to frame their strengths, interests and skills through a professional bio. Using these new assets, students will practice scheduling an interview and completing the formal interview process for another role. Students not only develop skills that they can transfer from one role to another, but they also learn how to discuss and apply these skills to a new job role.
