Technology lessons will be used with nearly 10,000 students across all grade levels nationwide
CLEVELAND – Dec. 5, 2019 – Hyland, a leading content services provider, partnered with TECH CORPS, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring students have access to computer science programs, to create a series of computer science lessons for students to support Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek), Dec. 9-15. CSEdWeek is an annual event designed to inspire students to expand their technology skills and raise awareness of the importance of computer science education. Nearly 10,000 students in Ohio, Kansas, Delaware and Missouri will benefit from Hyland’s collaborative effort with TECH CORPS, receiving fun and interactive technology lessons throughout the week.
“We wanted to develop a set of lessons that encouraged all teachers, regardless of their technology background, to get involved in CSEdWeek,” said Lisa M. Chambers, TECH CORPS national executive director. “Hyland has been a great supporter of our work for many years and we are so happy that they agreed to partner with us on this effort.”
Schools participating in CSEdWeek will:
– Receive computer science lesson plans suited for elementary, middle and high school students
– Build foundational computer science and coding skills to spark students’ interest in the technology education and related career paths
– Connect with Hyland employees from multiple departments to learn about different careers in technology
“We are thrilled to work with TECH CORPS to support its mission of making computer science education accessible to all students,” said Caitlin Nowlin, technical outreach program manager at Hyland. “During this week, 46 employees will connect with students of all ages, both in the classroom and virtually, to help them learn about technology and build essential skills that will serve them in educational endeavors and future careers.” Along with participating in events like CSEdWeek, Hyland is committed to supporting programs that teach computer science education to help students develop technology skills for the future – while also giving employees the opportunity to give back. Over the years, Hyland has grown its tech outreach programs, which include Hy-Tech Camps, Hy-Tech Clubs, Hackathons and High School Innovation Showdowns to introduce students to a range of technology topics, spark creativity and learn how to code.
