The menu on the left sidebar provides an organization of the functional areas for Nepris.
Go here if you want to request an industry professional for your classroom, browse past session request templates, view/edit your sessions, or see what is scheduled in your community. This is where you can access all of your sessions, events, and view your calendar and profile.
You can request an industry professional to virtually come into your classroom. Through the system, you can request a specific professional by sending them the topic, date, and time. If the professional doesn't respond to or declines the request, we will go to work finding another presenter for you! Once your request is accepted, we help 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, Pathful Connect can help you find the right person.
These are requests created by other educators and can provide a good starting point so you don't have to start from scratch. After choosing a template to use, the system will walk you through the steps to edit the request and make it your own. At the last step, the system will present you with a list of industry professionals who are qualified to fulfill your live, virtual session request.
Session Collections are like templates but curated, grouped, and organized to give you another way to find the best template to use. You can use the filters on the top to find collections that work best for you. Keep checking back as more collections are being added regularly.
Go here if you want to check out our Live Industry Chat schedule and register to attend a chat with your students.
Many of our professionals will offer interactive, live sessions for your classroom to join. Industry Connections 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. Click here to see a list of current Industry Connections.
Go here if you want to browse recorded videos of past sessions, view/share playlists, and browse other educators' playlists.
We record many of the live sessions and have thousands of videos of professionals and companies. If you participated in a live session, you can use the video for review afterward with your class or share it 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. Click here to access the Video Library.
Go here if you want to see upcoming virtual events hosted by your school/organization. *Only those with Admin Access will be able to "Create an Event".
Go here to find pre-made Activity Sheets, sample Lesson Plans, and Extention Activities.
You or your students can search on industries and careers, using information incorporated from O*NET Web Services by the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA). Not only can you find out about tasks, work styles, salaries, outlook, etc. but we match the results with videos from our library so you can listen and learn from an expert in that industry.
You can search and find both teachers and professionals within the Nepris community under the menu item Members. Go here to see their biography, industry, and skills, see what they have done, message them, and even start a request to them. You can message anyone else on the platform to collaborate, ask questions, or share ideas.
Notice that throughout the site, you will see a Contact Us or Need Help? in the lower right-hand corner. If support is online, we can chat with and answer your questions directly! If we are not online, you can submit questions and ideas which we will answer as soon as possible. Regardless, this is the fastest way to get support.
