Special Education Transition Classroom

Students in Ms. Almodovar's class designed a website for their school's salad program. Teachers and staff place the orders online (Google Forms) and then students help prepare the food. Every other week, students work on essential life skills by working on food preparation, kitchen safety, money skills, customer service, and social skills. The students love participating and preparing the food as it helps build skills and confidence in many areas. Students will take part in creating a website containing order forms, photos of their work, as well as descriptions of each salad option.

About the Digitability Work Simulation Program

Digitability believes that skills are best learned through real-world experience and application. That’s why Digitability created the Work Simulation Program: a complete curriculum that teaches work-ready skills in a hands-on way you won’t find anywhere else.

After choosing their classroom’s Work Simulation project, students are “hired” for jobs and begin practicing workplace behavior, managing tasks, using tech skills for independence, self-advocating, self-regulating and more. 

Digitability Work Simulations include Bankability, a virtual banking and workplace behavior program where students earn virtual dollars when they exhibit behaviors that will make them successful in the workplace and increase their independence. Using those dollars earned, students experience a modern banking app while learning the fundamentals of budgeting concepts such as earning, spending, and saving.
