You did a spectacular job and you really gave a great presentation connecting to what we are learning in class and life! Can’t wait to have you back!Kevin Wazny, Planning 10 Teacher Pinetree Secondary
Lee: I just wanted to let you know how all of my students enjoy ChatterHigh. I teach some special education students who regularly use Chatter High. They love getting all of the points for each question and they are learning about what may be available for them after high school. The most important thing about ChatterHigh is it is the equalizer in my class. All my students can participate and my special education students feel like all the other students. This is a unique opportunity for each of them and this alone makes doing ChatterHigh important to my classes.Suzannah Goldsack, Planning 10 Teacher St. Andrew's Regional High School
I know a number of the students enjoyed participating and many learned something out about a post-secondary school that they didn’t previously know.Kenny Jamieson, Pl 10 Coordinator Riverside Secondary School
ChatterHigh is a valuable tool for students that are looking into post secondary studies. The user-friendly site allows users to explore what is available, interesting and required at the numerous colleges and universities in Western Canada.Brad Anderson, CALM Teacher Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School
I think this is a wonderful way to get our students, especially our grads, thinking about their future in post-secondary.Jessica Robertson, English, French and AVID Teacher Spectrum Community School
I have taken a number of quizzes and found that they are very appropriate for Planning 10. They provide information about post-secondary programs.Jane Hayhoe, Planning 10 Teacher Yale Secondary School
They are actually learning about different options for careers. I have had at least 20 students actually request to check their course selections to ensure they are going to have the prerequisites for something they have learned about.Diane Chimich, Vice Principal St. Andrew’s Regional High School
Chatter High is a tool that gives students the chance to explore post-secondary options easily. It is presented in a friendly manner and will open their eyes to possibilities. In the meantime the high schools make money and the post-secondary institutions get exposure. This is a win-win-win situation.Carmen A. Toth, Marketing & Communications Manager Lethbridge College
Chatterhigh is a great way for students to begin the process of navigating post-secondary websites and win prizes!Angela Campbell, Recruitment and Advising Coordinator Red Deer College
It's a great site with a wealth of information. Too bad there was nothing remotely close to this kind of resource available when I was in school.Joan L, 'friend-of' Oak Bay Secondary School
The primary source that prospective students use in selecting a university program is the institution's website. ChatterHigh can contribute to more informed applicants by directing them to specific program information on your institution's website.Michele Jacobsen, PhD Associate Dean, Graduate Programs in Education, Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary
Over 80% of our site visits have come directly from ChatterHigh. We especially like how we can tailor questions to direct students, educators or parents to different areas of the website. ChatterHigh is a fantastic tool for anyone trying to get an educational message to high school students.Alix Cameron, Principal at Red Cab Communications DiscoverTradesBC.ca
I would like to say that the Chatter High program gave the students an opportunity to develop their understanding about health and post-secondary institutions within our country, especially within our region. Students committed themselves to doing the quizzes everyday and were excited to involve their families and friends outside of class. The style of the quizzes enabled the students do search and learn about relevant issues pertaining to their lives. Thank you for this opportunity.Crystal Stang, CALM Teacher West Central High School
I was impressed with the work you've done to make ChatterHigh an attractive resource for students, both in engagement and information.Dave Stephen, Manager, Communication Abbotsford School District #34
It is a spectacular resource for all students who have loads of questions during the important transition of high school and are trying to figure out what is best for them. I was proud to introduce this site to my students.Parminder Ghag, Planning 10 Teacher Dasmesh Punjabi School
The ChatterHigh competition became quite the buzz and we were thrilled to acknowledge the efforts of staff and students at our spirit assembly where the cheque was revealed.Anthony Ciolfitto, Principal Riverside Secondary School
The website is a valuable addition to a career planning program for junior and senior high school students. Using Chatterhigh prepares them in a less formal way to understand post-secondary programs so future career decisions may successfully be made. It also allows them to realize that there are several institutions and organizations ready to answer any questions they may have about what opportunities are accessible to them. Having competitions and prizes available for teens definitely encourages them to participate in the program. As a matter of fact, one of our Grade 10 students won a $1000 tuition award from Red Deer College through her involvement with Chatterhigh.Norma Thompson, Career Education Coordinator David Thompson High School
The Chatter High website provides interactive learning opportunities to foster teamwork and critical thinking.George Abbott The Honourable Minister of Education (former), British Columbia
En tant qu'enseignante de planification 10°, ChatterHigh permet à mes élèves d'explorer de façon amusante plusieurs avenues d'études et de choix de carrière. De plus, ChatterHigh leur permet d'être informé sur divers sujets comme la nutrition, les accidents de travail ou les visites éducatives potentielles dans un musée/parc comme Fort Rodd Hill.Julie Gagnon Enseignante au Conseil scolaire francophone de la CB
ChatterHigh is a quick, fun start-up activity each day for my Planning 10 class. What they learn in the quiz can lead to questions we discuss in class or segue into the lesson, for example our current career research project.Gerri Willms, Planning 10 Teacher (Ret'd) Pitt Meadows Secondary
I used ChatterHigh last year with my Planning 10 class to help fund-raise for a Staff Member at our school. I also used the site to help my Planning 10 class with post-secondary info and career-info (great resource.) Thank you and keep up the great website.Remo Bussoli, Planning 10 Teacher Claremont Secondary School
We use Chatterhigh in grade 9 to plant the seed of career planning and research. Chatterhigh gives students exposure to diverse occupations and post-secondary programs. The research component (which all students are encourage to select for more points) exposes students to information they would not have discovered on their own. Chatterhigh serves as a great means for guided discovery. The questions dealing with life management such as finance, taxes and health provide a balance of topics, which equips students with knowledge and skills for the future.Louan Statchuk & Sherry Leppa, Guidance Counsellor & CALM/Excite Teacher Olds Jr/Sr High
The Chatterhigh website is user friendly & easy to use. I enjoy taking the quizzes & learning more about the facilities & courses. I wish that there was a website like this when I was in high school. Chatterhigh is a great website with a wealth of information. Good Job!Lori Falk, Parent Camrose Composite High
ChatterHigh allows students to see what post-secondary opportunities are available to them in their immediate community. The key is that it is in their language and appealing to their digital media senses.Scott Alexander, Planning 10 Teacher Oak Bay Secondary School
I found this program to be quick and easy. I enjoyed the variety of questions and the rapid response time to find the answers. The students enjoyed the competitive aspect to it, which made the learning fun. Try it!Lil Bartel, Career Advisor George McDougall High School
Choosing a post-secondary can be a daunting task for students. How do they make the choice when they don’t even know the questions to ask? ChatterHigh helps them get the answers they need to help them make the right decisionsMichael Sondermann, Associate Director/Registrar SAIT Polytechnic
ChatterHigh allows students to prepare for an event like CAREERexpo without even knowing it. They will already have an idea of the post-secondary and career opportunities that will be there, and will be more focused on the day of the event taking full advantage of the opportunities. The format allows us to communicate with them in their language and their preferred format.Holly Bilton, Team Lead, Central AB CAREERs: The Next Generation
Chatterhigh has provided the unique opportunity for our students to investigate both traditional and non-traditional schooling options as they look forward to life after high school. It has become an integral part of my Planning 10 program.Suzannah Goldsack, Planning 10 Teacher St. Andrew's Regional High School
ChatterHigh is a fun and creative way for us to engage BC high school students. The competition we ran this fall was a huge success, and it is great to see the money going to local schools.Daniel Goertz, Student Recruitment Coordinator University of the Fraser Valley
ChatterHigh provides my students with a highly informative, interactive and relevant resource for post-secondary information. Using the different media - web pages, pictures, videos and audio sound bites - the students are easily engaged in investigating different options for after high school. I have even found that students will log onto chatterhigh.com on their own time. In some ways being able to get a slice of a teenagers personal time is the ultimate compliment!Chad Jacques, Visual Arts Teacher Oak Bay Secondary
I feel the kids were given an opportunity to learn something about many programs in post secondary and health whether they intended to or not. And that was the number one goal. The money was a huge bonus and is being well used by all parties involved. I loved how the kids were so generous and took on the philanthropy end of it without any pushing on my part to do so.Chris Cathcart, Planning 10 Teacher Riverside Secondary School
The students enjoyed entering prize draws, competing against other schools and actually learned a lot about future educational and career choices in the process. As I teach planning 10, this was an added and unexpected benefit of the web site as it fit directly into the messaging we were working on.Heidi Hackman, Planning Teacher Parkland Secondary
