Students Learn Web Design, Help Teach Career Options

A group of students in PA are helping their fellow classmates learn about the possible career options ahead of them following high school graduation. The students created a web site that will use videos to demonstrate some of the details in various careers:

(York Daily Record) A website created by Red Lion Area High School students will eventually help students around York County learn about career options through videos created by their peers.

York Area Careers Tube, or YACTube for short, was unveiled at Red Lion Area High School Wednesday. The idea was born at a business and education roundtable, hosted by the York County Economic Development Corporation in the fall, that brought together business and school districts to talk about ways they could connect to prepare students for the workforce.

Red Lion took the lead on creating a prototype site, which is not quite ready for public viewing yet. Students at the high school visited Johnson Controls and put together videos about the company.

Several classes at the high school were involved in the project. For example, journalism students interviewed employees and video production students edited video. Students studying web design worked on the website and others worked on the logo.

Some high school students who have been studying welding ended up being able to learn new welding skills at Johnson Controls. Their experience is featured in one video.

Videos include one offering an overview of the company and another featuring several employees talking about their jobs, their education and prospects for employment there.

Users will be able to browse videos based on job type, company, or school district, for example.
