)-- K.Tek Systems helped prepare students and teachers in the weeks prior to their visit at Enterprise Village by creating an Internet based “Job Profiling System,” which asked students a series of questions that covertly score them into a category, of which, best fits the personality and matches the students with a job category and/or position that they would be best suited for. The students would then complete an online employment application via the “Job Application Board” which allowed students to choose their companies and review the particular job function they would like to fulfill while at the simulated economic village. In final preparation for their day at Enterprise Village, students were introduced to another K.Tek innovation; an Internet based Cloud Computing Application called the K.Tek Connect Internet Blog. This educational tool was custom built and infused into the curriculum. Students were required to write blog articles which were held in a database and then “suspended” until the teacher gave final approval for the article to be published.
Once the student employees arrive at the K.Tek Offices at Enterprise Village, they are ready to fully utilize the skills they’ve learned during their introduction to Internet technology and Cloud Computing Systems. The student K.Tek employees spend time during their visit finalizing the K.Tek Connect Blog for publishing, as well as, meeting with each of the other businesses to determine their tag-line preference for advertisements that will be placed on the K.Tek Connect Blog. Perhaps the most exciting part of the day for K.Tek student employees at Enterprise Village occurs when they visit each business and conduct interviews on video as reporters. The taped interviews are edited when the students periodically return to the K.Tek headquarters in Enterprise Village. Once video production is completed, the student interviews are played on one of the K.Tek LCD screens throughout the day for everyone to see. This gives the K.Tek student employees the opportunity to showcase their hard work and gain first-hand insight into how technology is used to create video blogs.
Students are given blog access information (http://evconnect.ktek.com) as a unique souvenir of their day at Enterprise Village, and so that family and friends can view their articles and advertisements at their leisure online. An estimated seven million students, family, and teachers will view the K.Tek Connect Internet Blog globally as a result. This garners the school, students and other Enterprise Village businesses publicity and illustrates the true fusion between business technology.
K.Tek Systems was honored to be selected to establish a technology program for Enterprise Village that brought outstanding innovation to the simulated economic student learning center. “By supplying and utilizing a variety of technologies at Enterprise Village, K.Tek Systems automated some of the more traditional systems into current, 'paperless systems' that are relevant not only to the classroom environment but also better represents today’s world with regard to online newspapers, video, social media, and career assessment tools and online job boards,” said Kimberly During, CEO of K.Tek Systems and Founder of the During Foundation. K.Tek Systems Inc.’s achievements at Enterprise Village were further highlighted when Patricia Jeremiah, Director of the Stavros Institute noted the positive feedback she had received from parents impressed with the K.Tek Connect Internet Blog and their students work. “Many parents have even asked if K.Tek Systems offers a summer camp for students to learn more about technology,” said Jeremiah.
K.Tek Systems Inc.’s dedication to the community has awarded the design and development of Internet based “state of the art” technologies such as security, redundant hosting, cloud computing, separate teacher and student sites, and the Stavros Institute’s management and support system that directly impacts classroom curriculum.
