We’re looking for video or audio content that demonstrates the skills, knowledge and unique perspective you lean on every day to make your business successful:
What are the benefits for me & my business?
You have a unique skill set and can contribute to helping the future workforce facing a complex challenge right now.
Education sector connections/knowledge - deepen your understanding of how school districts are responding to challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic
Skills development - providing resources for practicing educators and students to increase skill development and workforce readiness
Community Impact - both the business and education sectors need a “two-way street” to understand each other’s roles in the community
Equity - the pandemic has had a magnifying effect on long-standing inequities in education. We aim to change that paradigm by providing business-tested content to help all students gain the skills they need, regardless of age, race/ethnicity, gender, or zip code.
Why this project?
As we move into a post-COVID19 educational world, the need for high-quality, online, and virtual learning experiences for practicing educators and their students is critical. A survey conducted by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) and the Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) identified four top needs for the education sector at this moment, including both “online instructional supports for teachers” and “technical supports for delivering remote learning.”
