Hyland Joins Microsoft TEALS Program Bridging the Computer Science Education Gap for Northeast Ohio Schools

Hyland employees volunteer to co-teach computational thinking and problem solving skills to area high school students

CLEVELAND, Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Four Hyland research and development employees have joined Microsoft's Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) program, volunteering to co-teach computer science education to high school students throughout Northeast Ohio. Hyland's volunteers have partnered with teachers at Lincoln West, John Hay and North Ridgeville high schools, teaching students how to code and piquing their interest in technology careers.

TEALS aims to grow sustainable computer science education programs by training volunteers to help teachers instruct coding courses at schools that do not currently include computer science education within their curriculums. TEALS supports several different high school-level computer science classes, including both introductory and AP courses, to spark interest in technology, prepare students for the growing number of technology careers and build computational thinking skills important in the job market of today and tomorrow.

"We are very passionate about becoming involved in programs that promote computer science education for all students because of its alignment with our philanthropic focus: to promote and develop youth education in technology," said Brenda Kirk, EVP and chief product and strategy officer at Hyland. "I have no doubt our employees involved with TEALS this year will have an immense impact on their partner schools, helping to build foundational programs and close the gap in current curriculums."

The number of available technology-focused careers continues to outpace the number of students graduating with computer science and technology related degrees. By 2020, it is estimated that the US will have 1.4 million computer science-related jobs available, only one-third of which will be filled by college graduates.

"Computer science skills are crucial for young people, as every field and industry today has some element of technology driving it," said Mary Snapp, corporate vice president of microsoft philanthropies. "We are grateful to employees from Hyland for sharing their talent and expertise with young people, and for inspiring students to learn skills that will help them maximize their career options in the future. I also want to thank Hyland for supporting these volunteers in this important work in the community."

Microsoft's TEALS program was founded in 2009 and is supported by Microsoft Philanthropies. Mirosoft Philanthropies worked with the Cleveland Foundation, the Cuyahoga County Executive's office, and Cleveland State University to bring TEALS to Cleveland.  Nineteen Cleveland-area volunteers, at nine local high schools, are participating in the program this year, including the following representatives from Hyland: Ariel Koiman, Jason Knight, Umang Banugaria and Peter Jindra.
