Infotech Lead America: HCL Technologies will set up an online technology hub for schools and businesses in association with North Carolina New Schools which will promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs in North Carolina, U.S.
HCL Technologies on Wednesday said it would design the hub which will serve as a central gathering place for featured content and discussion between teachers, school staff, students, counsellors, district office superintendents and NC New Schools’ administration staff among others.
HCL America President Shami Khorana said: “As an extension of HCL’s ongoing efforts to help develop the next-generation workforce, this collaboration with NC New School gives schools and businesses the necessary tools and skill sets required to support students understand STEM and pursue growth opportunities in these areas.”
NC New Schools will use HCL’s services for content creation and management of its online resources. NC New Schools will move approximately 3,000 of its intranet users to the new technology hub.
NC New Schools President Tony Habit said: “Partnering with world-class organisations like HCL significantly strengthens our ability to reach beyond the classroom and provide students with the real-world learning and career-related experiences that prepare them for post-secondary success.”
