New Mexico TechWorks presents with Students and Interns at the New Mexico Digital Learning Conference in Albuquerque!
We would love to thank New Mexico Youth Ambassadors and Next Generation Media Teams, including the students from Turquoise Trail Middle school, Wilson Middle School, and Albuquerque High School, as well as the staff administrators, volunteers, and parents who supported their efforts and made it possible for them to travel to CNM Workforce Training Center today to present at the New Mexico Digital Learning Conference.
New Mexico TechWorks, including our interns, New Mexico Youth Ambassadors, and our Next Generation Media Teams presented a session at the New Mexico Digital Learning Conference in Albuquerque, January 30th. Students spoke on "Teaching and Learning for the New Economy." The students shared statistics on job growth in the tech industry, the changing work environment and growth of the gig economy, they shared their views on the "new economy" and what it means, and gave statistics on which industries have the highest growth in New Mexico. They also shared their opinion on where the direction of education should go in order for students to be better equipped with skills for the changing economy.
The presentation was led by Natalia Marquez, Sawyer Headly, Seven Ballard, Simon Ballard, and Jennifer Nevarez. The presentation was filmed and documented by Elijah Valdez and Camilo Candelaria.
We were so excited by the conversation at the event, we decided to continue the dialogue and would love to hear your thoughts. Add your response to the link below!
What is the "New Economy" and what skills or jobs do you think are important in the "New Economy?"
New Mexico Techworks had the opportunity to interview Zippy Guerin. Zippy works with Creative Santa Fe and is the founder of Santa Fe Found, an online platform that highlights local artists and entrepreneurs. In this interview she explains how technology has impacted her career and life.
Sending warm and cozy 2019 greetings...and a quick survey!
It is come to our attention that many of the employees, entrepreneurs, and family members of our local Tech and Media companies are interested in alternate transportation options, as well as safe biking and walking opportunities in our community. Alas, we are rolling into the New Year in collaboration with the Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and asking for your input and insights.
The MPO is in the process of updating its Bicycle Master Plan and needs input from a wide range of community members to gain a better and broader understanding of transit habits and bicycling in the Santa Fe area. Your responses will help shape the future of transportation in our region and guide recommendations in the 2019 Bicycle Master Plan. To share your insights, please complete the brief survey here:
2019 Bicycle Master Plan Survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/72CKGFQ
The Bicycle Master Plan is a tool that will be utilized by its member entities (City of Santa Fe, Santa Fe County, and Tesuque Pueblo) along with many other non-governmental stakeholders in making decisions that shape the rules, regulations and the built environment that directly affect transportation and bicycling in the Santa Fe area. It should only take a couple minutes but we thank you for your time and insights.
Since the MPO is seeking a broad range of community input, we also hope you would consider circulating this survey among any other organization and business, as well as staff, co-workers, family, or friends.
Thanks again for your input!
Meanwhile, hope the holidays proved nourishing and sending best wishes for a wonderful 2019.
We have a heap of exciting things brewing and look forward to sharing an amazing year! Stay tuned...
