Real World Delivered to the Classroom. Nepris connects teachers and students with the right industry experts, virtually without having to spend much planning time while providing an effective way for companies to extend education outreach and create equity of access.
Although you will find many social aspects to the Nepris platform to connect and inform, there are three main ways to participate:
- Request an Industry Expert. You can request an industry expert to virtually come into your classroom. You pick the topic, date and time and Nepris will find the match and prepare everyone for the session. Whether you need someone in a field to talk about their career and job, make a connection to how a curriculum topic is applied in the real world, get someone to help students with a long-term project or even find an audience for student presentations of projects, Nepris can help you find the right person.
- Join an industry Chat. Many of our professionals will offer interactive, live sessions for your classroom to join. Industry Chats are offered throughout the year and often fall into themes (e.g. Hour of Code, Black History Month, Executive Leadership, etc.). If you find a time and topic that fits into your schedule, you can sign up and join other classrooms.
- Use the Video Library. We record many of the live sessions. If you participated in a live session, you can use the video for review afterwards with your class or to share with your other classes. But you can also assign available videos to your students to enable you to introduce a unit for homework, provide a recording of a class for absent students, flip the classroom, etc.
