Coming Up Next on ATETV…

Friday, September 10th, 2010

It’s hard to believe how fast time passes, but it’s been one year since the launch of ATETV!

Since then viewers have “met” a wide spectrum of individuals who described the numerous programs and opportunities available through the Advanced Technological Education programs at community colleges around the country. Along the way we became acquainted with leaders in such emerging fields as Alternative Energy, Biotechnology and Cybertechnology; were introduced to students who were following their dreams studying exciting programs in simulation and video game development and exploring “high-flying” careers in Wind Energy as well as Aviation Technology; and talked with ATE leaders from around the country who told us about the many up-and-coming career opportunities available at community colleges nationwide.

Now, ATETV producers are back at work on 40 new videos. Once again, they’ll be going behind the scenes to visit classrooms, industries and other settings to bring viewers a firsthand look at the many ways that community college programs are leading to good-paying jobs and rewarding futures — and at the same time, filling the many critically important new technology positions that will prove key to our country’s economy, our environment and our future.

For a quick glimpse of one of these new videos, this week we’re sharing video footage shot last month by an ATETV production team at Three Rivers Community College in Norwich, Connecticut. As you’ll see in the clip — and learn more about in an upcoming ATETV video — the college’s Project TLC (Technology Learning Community) provides incoming college freshmen with an accelerated summer preparation program in math and English, along with college readiness skills. The program’s dynamic “learning community” not only provides students with important group settings in which to grow and develop, but also brings in industry speakers to share their experiences and even takes students on industry tours for a firsthand look at today’s real-world employment.

And there’s much more to come! Stay tuned for 40 new ATETV videos to learn about the innovative new educational programs and promising career opportunities that await students at community colleges around the country — it’s shaping up to be another exciting year!
