Oklahoma CareerTech is known for being nimble and flexible, quickly adapting to the needs of industry in Oklahoma. In addition to 29 technology centers across the state, Oklahoma CareerTech provides training through 391 PK-12 school districts, 15 Skills Centers, 32 Adult Education and Family Literacy providers and Work-Based Learning programs.
The students produced videos sharing the benefits they have received from participating in work-based learning.
“CareerTech work-based learning experiences are extensions of the education and skills development students receive in their CareerTech programs,” said H.L. Baird, Oklahoma CareerTech work-based learning liaison. “WBL is a guided transition from simulation in the program to real-world experience. Mentors at places of business provide direction and evaluation to help students learn skills beyond classroom practice.”
Francis Tuttle Tech students highlighted their experiences in a video titled “Behind the Scenes at Thunder Media Day.” Their production was used in the final Thunder media day product, Baird said.
The two groups of Tulsa Tech students produced “A Taste of the Real World” and “Real World Experiences.”
