October 9, 2013

From whby.com: “FVTC creating apps for students” — Fox Valley Technical College will create about 375 apps to help students learn the information technology skills that they’ll need in their future career.

Jay Stulo is the school’s learning innovation and technology manager. He says they received a $1.5 million dollar grant from the federal labor department, for the project. He says students at all of the state’s tech schools will use the apps.

He says one application would help students in an agriculture program learn how to program tractors. using GPS technology. Stulo says some students need to catch up to current technology.

Stulo says teachers will be able to incorporate the apps into their lesson plans, and they should all be finished within three years.
