Over the past months we have had the pleasure of partnering with a Digital Literacy class from Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Professor Benjamin Ristow’s class was split into two sub-groups in order to handle different assignments here at the FLWIB.
One group was assigned to volunteer for Finger Lakes Works…with their hands! These students created a presentation on their experiences and what they learned through volunteering for the day. Josh Malenick, Mark Guarino-Hyde, Keith Clark, Tom Rush, and Onyx Jackson-Preston are pictured below with Professor Ristow at the event.
The second group is currently working with the Finger Lakes Works on staff development. After preparing a survey on needs regarding digital literacy, the group analyzed the information and will give presentations to staff in the upcoming weeks. Emily Saeli, Kevin Casey, Kelly-Anne Rybak, Mimi Mahoney, Robert Serenbetz and Ben Ayres will be the group providing workshops to staff specifically regarding social media and presentation tools.
Partnerships like the one we have built with Hobart and William Smith Colleges are beneficial to everyone involved. From volunteer work, to educating our staff on the ever-changing digital world, we cannot thank Professor Ristow and his class enough. We look forward to many more projects with the colleges in order to assist in helping connect the students with our local community.
The IT/Computer Science event was the latest in a continuing series of informative panel presentations for Finger Lakes Guidance Counselors. This presentation was held on November 8th at Wayne – Finger Lakes BOCES. Three educators and three employers in the IT/Computer Science industry sat on the panel. These panel presentations are held to better inform guidance counselors, so they may in turn assist their students in choosing a career/education path that is right for them.
