The Learning Innovations (LI) team at Fox Valley Technical College and the National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (DEC) have joined forces to create a mobile application that will connect children endangered by drug use with resources in their own community.
This week, the National DEC came to the area and used the FVTC Public Safety Training Center as a backdrop to shoot scenario videos that will be incorporated into the mobile app under development.
Several area media outlets checked out how those videos are being produced and learned more about the FVTC project.
While developing an app isn’t unique to the Learning Innovations team, the subject matter of the project is unique.
“Realizing how widespread the problem is, it goes beyond stereotypes, said Jay Stulo, director of Learning Innovations, while being interviewed by FOX11. “People and families in crisis really are in all walks of life.”
