Our mission with myBlueprint Education Planner is to offer the most engaging education and career/life planning program to support you and your students.

Below are some ideas to help you successfully implement myBlueprint in your school or classroom. 

  1. Use the Year-at-a-Glance guides (Resources > Implementation & Curriculum) to set monthly school-wide objectives by grade. For example:

    1. Have all students create an account and complete the Learning Styles survey by October

    2. Have all students create 2 post-secondary/career goals by the end of November


  1. Choose a department in your school that will be responsible for getting all students to log in and activate their accounts (e.g., All grade 9 students will create their account in English class)


  1. Promote the use of myBlueprint across all subject areas by having all students create a “Goal Setting” portfolio to which they can add their subject-specific academic and personal goals


  1. Build a Community Practice by inviting parents to be part of the planning process through 3-way Conferences between students, parents, and teachers/mentors. Share the Information for Parents and prepare students to present their myBlueprint portfolio with the help of a Student-led Conference Dialogue Guide 

  2. Upload and share a School Resource with students (e.g., Career fair flyerPost-secondary application documentationScholarship & Bursary information, School Calendar, etc.)


  1. Run reports on students’ favourite occupations, post-secondary programs, and institutions to help organize your Post-Secondary Education Fair and/or select guest speakers that match your students’ interests


  1. Share important information regarding upcoming school events by sending a school message (e.g., Broadcast the upcoming Post-Secondary Education Fair and attach the event flyer)


  1. Build a custom Exit Survey for your Grade 12 students to get an idea of where your students are headed next, and to evaluate how prepared they feel when transitioning to post-secondary


  1. Invite Grade 11/12 “myBlueprint student ambassadors” to support younger students with myBlueprint and career/life planning


  1. Use a specific lesson plan or Course Package from the myBlueprint Support Page that aligns with a school initiative (e.g., What is Stress? lesson plan for Mental Health awareness week or a province-specific Career Education Course Package)


  1. Schedule a Lunch & Learn for new staff or participate in a drop-in webinar to refresh yourself and staff on student and staff account features
