Nortel executives recently visited DPS's Hillside New Tech High School, in Durham, NC and were 'wowed' by what they saw and heard.
Students created a presentation about their high school and interviewed the visiting Nortel Executives about their jobs, technology, and their interests. The students used the new Nortel LearniT Creating Career Bytes Toolkit as their learning resource to prepare for the video production portion of the day. Be sure to read one Nortel Executives thoughts on the experience on his weblog.
One of the students had this to say about the event:
"The executives from Nortel were phenomenal, because they inspired me to think about what life can hold. I thought it was interesting to hear them tell us about their lives. What really got my attention was hearing how you could have a life changing experience just through networking". ~Pearlie T.
Career Bytes videos are 5-minute video interviews of career professionals designed to engage viewers and communicate the essentials of technology-engaged careers. The Toolkit features videos on the why's and how's of Career Bytes video creation, checklists that get you set to shoot, and step-by-step guidelines (overview and production stage details).
In February 2008, executives from Nortel created a partnership with the DPS Podcasting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) project. Their donation of still and video recording equipment, training in Nortel LearniT's educational resources, and access to their team of STEM educators has advanced the school's STEM curriculum and excited the students. In recognition of the significance of this contribution, Nortel LearniT has been added to the web site for DPS' Innovation Generation Grants (Motorola) Podcasting STEM web site.
