Teaching, Connecting & Empowering Today's Learners
Jones, Virginia R.
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J3), v88 n1 p16-17 Jan 2013
Since career and technical education (CTE) is based historically on promoting technical, hands-on, real-world applications in numerous vocations, CTE educators are uniquely poised to offer more use of instructional technology in their classrooms. Many CTE educators have remarkable connections with industry partnerships, internships and learning labs to promote technology. Twenty-first century skills integrate seamlessly with technology applications and skills available to educators and learners. CTE offers amazing opportunities for integrating technology for the Career Clusters and pathways as each one uses technology appropriate to its specific industry. From engineering to architecture to health science to transportation to STEM, each uses general applications and specialized technologies in the daily performance of the job. Harnessing the multitude of technology services available today takes time on the part of the educator, but it is well worth it to enhance the learning and engagement of the students. CTE has half the battle won as its courses are hands-on, real-world and relevant. Adding the extra technology applications help CTE educators teach, connect and empower their learners.
