Career Technical Education | Eliminating Stereotypes

Posted by on Feb 8, 2012 in Education

In the previous post, I shared with you our observations on the “current” work force developments happening in Licking County, over at C-TEC. I enjoyed Kelly Wallace’s passion for helping restaff our community.

For the High School aged students of C-TEC, it was a slightly different story. Just like in the adult programs, they were all very focused, very mature students. They took their programs and teaching seriously. But there’s a fight in them, that’s going to be necessary to overcome the challenges they’ll face in this rapidly shifting global economy. They’ve been pushed and they’re ready to push back … and make some real noise.

Eliminating Stereotypes
The down and dirty

In order to pull off the on-site production, we tapped the Digital Design & Interactive Media class for interns. We had a group of three kids, at almost all times, who set up lights, positioned cameras and ran audio. It’s the most rewarding part of these projects, helping those students get a better understanding of what it takes to pull off a professional quality shoot. We often sit with the students during down time (lunch, between interviews, etc) and give perspective on college, and the current economy. I feel that’s where we’re making the most difference. I hope you enjoy and become inspired to share.

    Dude, that pre-calc transparent scroll across the teachers face was SICK!

    In an after high school capacity, I faced this stereotype almost daily working for OCB in Columbus. Really good stuff man.

      Thanks Dave! I think we’re moving from a society that is used to having things done for them, to one that’s gonna get it done.
