Abstract

Developing curriculum aligned with employment outcomes often includes linear design. However, students do not cognitively approach their education linearly, and economies do not fluctuate linearly. We should support students' natural non-linear approaches to education and employment. Chat bots that include non-linear presentation of text, short video clips, and images can help us design curricular experiences that mirror and personalize unique student cognition. As students navigate nudges of content within a chat bot on their phone or full-page views in an internet browser, the initial content will catalyze new questions and non-linear thinking for students to then explore their own employment related journeys. This will buttress students to be agents in their learning instead of objects of linear design. Machine learning models feeding chat bot learning journeys and experiences can help improve organic assessment for a constellation of employment preparedness outcomes and connection.
