Fayette Institute of Technology Addresses Missed Instructional Days
Due to the large number of instructional days being lost across the region due to snow days, Fayette Institute of Technology in Charleston, West Virginia turned to CDX Automotive so students could connect to their course materials anywhere, anytime.
Larry Nunnery, a teacher of automotive technology at the Fayette Institute of Technology, adopted CDX after learning about the program at a vocational conference and getting funding through the board office and a state department grant.
"I am able to go online and see which students have been on the program, the duration of their visit and what lessons they worked on snow days," he explained.
"We are making strides in providing information for our students to keep up on snow days. I can send them assignments, and the kids are enjoying it. Those who are using it, their grades are improving by the letter," he added.
Nunnery also mentioned that the program is beneficial to the vocational school when not all schools are on the same schedule. Students can go into the lab and work on CDX.
He said the program assists students in learning to do diagnostics through critical thinking and problem-solving, something they don't get a lot of time to do in class.
