At Plot Twisters, we want to...

1.   Research and communicate what work really is to young people.

Plot Twisters is creating fun, imaginative tools to explain the rapidly changing landscape of work to young people. Schools struggle to explain "creativity" and "complex problems solving" skills clearly to students, even though 40% of jobs now require them. We break them down into simple metaphors and show examples in their real, everyday schoolwork.

2.   Introduce diverse role models and career journeys from an early age.

Dreaming big should be accessible to all students. By exploring diverse role model journeys as they build their own journey, Plot Twisters helps them notice trends in their own values, skills, and roles. We provide a platform for students to discover and set goals.

3.   Empower student to be the protagonists of their education.

Unlike career and personality tests, Plot Twisters is not prescriptive. Students decide for themselves what their journey is, and where it's going. Plot Twisters empowers students to discover the values, skills, roles, and causes that are meaningful to them.

4.   "Think globally, act locally."

Pressing challenges from environmental waste to health inequity affect every person on Earth, so navigating these issues will be the classwork of the future. Plot Twisters introduces this seed of global citizenship in every student's journey, and serves as an example social enterprise.

5.   Practice using technology safely and mindfully.

As we build tools for digitally sharing education and career stories, Plot Twisters is focused on instilling healthy relationships with building identities online. We carefully curate mindful role models and are transparent about our interface design choices.

6.   Design for students and educators by working with them directly.

Plot Twisters is an educational technology studio that treats each school as a long-term partner. We know how different every learning environment can be, so we visit and customize our tools specifically for each classroom.
