Driven by a shared commitment to bring innovation to education and prepare graduates for college, careers and life, HCL Technologies and North Carolina New Schools are collaborating to create and promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs and get college students ready for the 21st century workforce.

HCL will design an online technology hub, which will serve as a central gathering place for featured content and discussion between teachers, principals, school staff, students, counsellors, college liaisons, district office superintendents and NC New Schools’ administration staff. NC New Schools will leverage HCL’s services for content creation and management of its collaborative, online community offering access to tools and resources required to accelerate systemic, sustainable innovation in schools. NC New Schools will move approximately 3,000 NC New Schools’ intranet users to the new technology hub.

“Partnering with HCL significantly strengthens our ability to reach beyond the classroom and provide students with the real-world learning and career-related experiences that prepares them for post-secondary success,” Tony Habit, President, NC New Schools.
