Real World Delivered to the Classroom. Pathful Connect virtually connects you with educators and students so that you can share your knowledge and skills.
Here are some ways to get started:
- Accept a Request from an educator. Educators submit "Requests" for an industry professional to virtually speak with their class about a particular topic (usually for 20-45 minutes). We make matches based on user profiles, and will email you when we've found a good match. Topics might include discussing your career, giving feedback on student presentations, or connecting their learning to your work. You can also proactively find requests by browsing volunteer opportunities here.
- Host an Industry Chat. You can schedule a live, interactive "Industry Chat" for multiple classrooms to (virtually) join and we'll recruit teachers to participate. If you want, you can align what you present to a theme we've listed on the scheduling page (e.g. Computer Science Education Week, Earth Day, etc.), plus we have optional templates to make scheduling super fast. Set up your 20-45 minute session here.
- View Videos. Get presentation ideas and see what else is happening in your field by exploring our video library of past sessions. You can check it out here.
- Use Career Explorer. This feature offers quick career information and statistics plus a side-by-side job comparison tool. Click here to access the Explorer tool.
