CTE curriculum provider serves over 80 percent of districts statewide with TEKS-aligned materials
LUBBOCK, Texas (Feb. 7, 2018) – As part of Proclamation 2017, the Texas State Board of Education selected CEV Multimedia to provide Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum to align with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Following the development and approval of 87 CTE courses for the iCEV online learning platform, CEV Multimedia announced today that 900 Texas school districts have successfully adopted courses.
School districts that adopted iCEV materials received pre-packed, TEKS-aligned courses and learning materials, an automatic testing and grading system, and numerous lessons that will guide students through their education and careers. Student licenses offer interactive learning opportunities through project-based activities, video assignments and industry-backed certifications.
“The adoption process allowed CTE educators from across Texas to modernize their CTE curriculum and ensure that the next-generation of workers have the skills future employers are looking for,” said Dusty Moore, president of iCEV. “Together with Texas educators, we helped 2,050 students earn industry-backed certifications last year and we look forward to working with even more students throughout the state this year.”
Since the completion of the approval process, CEV Multimedia has added an additional 16 TEKS-aligned courses, 125 lessons, 36,699 questions and 4,206 interactive activities and assessments to iCEV.
“In our school district, we look at iCEV like a mechanic looks at a toolbox. When a teacher wants to teach a new skill, they can go into iCEV to find the necessary materials just like a mechanic searches a toolbox for the proper tool to repair a car,” said Michael Daniel, director of CTE at Magnolia Independent School District.
In 2017, students nationwide answered over 78 million questions, watched 11 million minutes of video (a 94 percent increase from 2016), completed 650 online professional development sessions and earned 5,000 industry-backed certifications with iCEV.
