White Paper on How to Make STEM Part of the Mainstream Curriculum

The modern workforce needs people with STEM competencies in almost every industry, but many educators are trying to figure out how to effectively deliver a STEM education that makes students truly 21st century ready. Intelitek has released a new white paper, “Crossing the Chasm to Mainstream STEM Education,” that addresses misconceptions about STEM learning and explains how to use technology to revolutionize classrooms and teaching behaviors.

“Many teachers are simply digitizing their existing teaching methods, which just perpetuates passive learning. Using technology to develop a collaborative and interactive educational setting will help students prepare for their future careers, even non-STEM-related ones,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “In this latest white paper, we show how educators can combine technology and instructional practices to create more meaningful learning opportunities and reposition the education system to become a central, self-sustaining tool for lifelong learning.”

35-3000-0005_Cover“Crossing the Chasm” addresses the following misconceptions about STEM education:
• There is a lack of funding for STEM studies
• STEM is just Math and Science with another name
• Teachers don’t understand STEM well enough to teach it
• STEM is only for students who are STEM inclined
• STEM is a lot of hype, and not a lot of substance
• STEM learning cannot be evaluated
• STEM education is expensive
• There is a lack of infrastructure available to deliver STEM education

In addition, the white paper explains how cloud-based environments like Intelitek’s interactive CoderZ platform can help educators overcome many of the obstacles to introducing STEM into mainstream education and how gamification can improve learning. “Virtual learning, Web 2.0 tools and robotics simulations can offer STEM learning to every student with a browser at a much lower cost and with much broader reach than traditional STEM programs,” said Yerushalmi. “And empirical studies have shown that gamifying learning improves student enjoyment, participation and, most importantly, learning results.”

“Educators need a formula for crossing the chasm between the traditional learning methods of yesterday, and the engaging, inclusive technology environments of tomorrow,” Yerushalmi continued. “We believe that this new white paper will point them in the right direction.”

The “Crossing the Chasm” white paper is available for download.

Intelitek to Debut New Machine Vision Training Program and Certification Based on Cognex at ACTE’s CareerTech Vision 2018

New machine vision and quality control training program delivers skills-based training and blended learning programs to prepare students for in-demand professions in the manufacturing industry

Intelitek, a leader in CTE education worldwide is announcing the release of their new “Machine Vision Technology with Cognex” training program at ACTE’s CareerTech Vision 2018, running November 28-December 1, in San Antonio, Texas. The program, developed by Intelitek (Booth #900), is based on the Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX) vision technology. Cognex is a global leader in the machine vision field and the training features Cognex specific training and Cognex Certification for high school, community college, technical school and university students.

Cognex logoCognex Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, and markets a range of products that Machine vision is smart automation technology that uses cameras and software to provide the image interpretation and visual feedback needed for parts inspection, robotic guidance and industrial automation. The technology has become a critical part of the current industrial revolution (known as Industry 4.0. – the fourth industrial revolution), and it is deployed by logistics companies, manufacturers and machine builders in order to cut costs, improve efficiencies and maximize throughput.

The training program includes a virtual component titled “Machine Vision and Image Processing” and a lab-based component titled “Machine Vision and Quality Control”. Both the components use Cognex technology, Cognex In-Sight Explorer software and Cognex vision sensors. By completing these training programs and taking a test, Students can obtain industry-recognized certification based on the skills they gain with the Cognex solution. The training program will simulate a real-world workplace in the manufacturing industry where students will be expected to use cameras or a sensor to determine if a part was manufactured correctly.

“A lot of students are trying to gain industry knowledge before graduating, and since Cognex is an industry leader in machine vision, we worked with them to develop this Cognex certification geared toward education,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “They’ll have experience with our industrial robots, the CNC machines and the course also simulates a real manufacturing floor. This is something students can put on their resume, and it will give them a leg up on the competition when they’re looking for a job after graduation.”

The “Machine Vision Technology with Cognex” training program will be available for schools to purchase January 1, 2019.
