New career-tech social media network


An Ohio high school graduate is getting career-tech students to talk to other students through a new social media network, iAmCareerTech.com. This interactive site targets prospective, current and former career tech students.

Matt King is a 2013 Lakota East High School graduate and current sophomore at Ball State University. He created the site using the Ohio Department of Education’s Class of 2014 success stories. These stories reflect career aspirations from such areas as performing arts, business, engineering, IT and electronics.

The department encourages principals and school counselors at middle and high schools to use the video this school year to show the exciting opportunities that career-technical education offers.
