EAU CLAIRE, Wis. – June 24, 2020 – Realityworks, Inc., a leader in experiential learning technology, today announced that EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market, has selected the company as winner of its “Overall Career Prep Company of the Year” award in the second annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.
Educational products and programs from Realityworks bring real-life scenarios into the classroom to give students a hands-on approach to skills training. The company’s innovative learning tools and standards-based curricula were created to give Career and Technical Education (CTE) students experience in a variety of career fields and help them with decision-making for their futures. These solutions are used in middle, secondary and post-secondary schools to address a variety of CTE fields, including welding and trade skills, agriculture, health and human services, health sciences, sex education and more.
Outside of these products, Realityworks closely partners with local high schools and colleges to offer internship opportunities for students. The company aims to encourage the growth of students in career development by providing hands-on training in the company’s engineering, research and design, human resource and marketing departments through internship and youth apprentice programs. Working closely with these students not only helps them develop skills but also brings fresh ideas and perspectives to the company.
“When we looks for development opportunities, we always start in the classroom. We talk to educators about their needs, lessons they teach, and what topics could use a simulation to truly hit a lesson home,” said Timm Boettcher, Realityworks President & CEO. “These relationships help to determine the existing and future needs within schools and organizations and where we could create experiential learning and technical simulation solutions to further develop and inspire tomorrow’s workers. We measure our impact by how many lives are changed in positive ways, and how profoundly they are changed, because of our efforts. This 2020 EdTech Breakthrough Award is a fantastic validation of the hard work and success of the entire Realityworks team.”
“Realityworks has dedicated itself to helping boost opportunities within the CTE field with an impressive set of hands-on tools designed for today’s learning, including new products and curricula that CTE educators need to engage students and train them in various careers,” said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. “As the job market stands in difficult times, Realityworks is providing a powerful platform full of compelling resources and programs for continued learning. We are thrilled to name Realityworks the winner of our 2020 EdTech Breakthrough Award as ‘Overall Career Prep Company of the Year’ and we congratulate the entire Realityworks team on a well-deserved industry recognition.”
