This video is a chance to be really creative with your class and get them engaged with the idea of a future career. If you’re stuck for ideas on how to get started, we’ve listed below a few questions for some career areas, as well as some ideas on how you might format a video

Format ideas:

  • Day-in-the-life – have your students act out the roles of a doctor or a group of healthcare workers in the year 2030. Your students could dress up for the role, or simply act out a patient arriving in a hospital and showing what the experience would be like with the changes in technology

  • In class project – you and your students could construct a piece of technology that you can imagine being part of a career and explain what it does and how it works with current technology. Does it use Microsoft software? Does it use the HP Sprout to gather information? How would an artist’s life change because of this new technology?

  • A cartoon style film – rather than act in the film yourselves, your students could draw pictures of your career area and put together a cartoon style video with a narrator  - or text – telling the story. Use the HP Sprout applications to draw, scan and create an animated movie.

Here are some sample questions for a few careers to get your thinking started:
