EAU CLAIRE, WI, January 24, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Realityworks, Inc., announces the receipt of a 2019 Florida Career Pathways Best Practice Award. Presented at the 2019 Florida Career Pathways Network Symposium in Jensen Beach, FL on January 17, the award recognizes Realityworks' prioritization of educator and administrator partnerships to ensure the company's training tools meet student needs while teaching in-demand job skills.
"We're dedicated to creating innovative learning tools that keep today's students and teachers in mind, and our product development practices reflect that dedication," said Realityworks Product Marketing Manager Jamey McIntosh, who accepted the award from Florida Career Pathways Network President Chris Jargo. "It is by asking teachers what they need that we create quality training tools for their classrooms."
McIntosh gave symposium attendees deeper insight into Realityworks' product development practices in his symposium presentation, "Using Hands-On Learning Aids and Simulation to Teach Animal Science for Agriculture Education." The presentation detailed how Realityworks uses instructor feedback and research-based learning to create training tools that focus on career readiness within growing fields like agriculture, the single largest employer in the world. As a result, the company's training tools include one-a-kind products like the Bovine Breeder™ artificial insemination simulator and the Bovine Injection Simulator, which provide instructors with affordable, convenient and engaging ways to teach students key agriculture skills.
"Educators have shared with us their desire for interactive, memorable products that focus on skill development while improving classroom management," said McIntosh. "Their insight helps ensure that our programs remain relevant and continue providing the targeted learning opportunities today's students need to develop job skills."
