Which of the soft skills platforms are best and how should we review them?
See the CTE folder through the DOE Teach From Home Remote Learning Portal. One that has already been vetted by the DOE is the ACTE/Accenture’s Skills to Succeed Academy (free WBL modules for career preparation).
Two other platforms are currently being vetted:
Careerprepped (free ACTE partnered site for student employability skills development)
edX (RITx course(s) Free version (soft skills development)
NOTE: These soft-skills programs have been shared by the DOE with NYSED for review to count as WBL hours toward CTE endorsement. We are still waiting for a response on this.
