We are redesigning the educational experience for students of color by leveraging an online learning environment that equips them with technologies relevant to the 21st century.
The National Center for Education Statistics linked lower levels of academic performance "beginning in kindergarten and extending through elementary school and high school" to living in poverty during early childhood in its report titled "The Condition of Education" from 2016. The information was published in 2016. Inadequacies in physical and cognitive development and inequities in access to healthcare and other crucial resources ensure children from low-income families can experience success. These inadequacies are in addition to those that are related to schooling. In addition, the findings suggest that students with low incomes have a five times greater chance of dropping out of high school compared to students with high incomes and a thirteen times greater chance of failing to graduate on time. For many of these young people, their ability to join and thrive in postsecondary education is negatively impacted in the long term by their families' financial circumstances and their experiences in K-12 institutions that lack enough resources.
HDG University has formed a partnership with IBM, a leader in the field of information technology, and its Skill Build platform. This platform introduces secondary school students (ages 13 to 18) to new career choices and the skills necessary for success in the workforce of the future. In addition, the portal gives users free access to product-neutral courses that can be either professional or technical, making it an ideal starting point for career exploration.
In a society that is becoming more reliant on digital technology, having a solid foundation in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields is essential. Because we can instill a love for STEM subjects in kids, we can assist them in opening up a whole new universe of opportunities for themselves and making them more marketable to potential employers. In addition, our labor force is the essential component necessary for the development of future advancements in technology, engineering, and a variety of other sectors. We know what will keep them interested and excited throughout their educational journey, from high school graduation to job placement, because the curriculum is rooted deeply in how children learn.
Through the IBM SkillsBuild platform, we will assist students interested in computer science, engineering, or business. Our tailored curriculum will assist them in discovering their real calling and prepare them for it.
The HDG University curriculum includes IBM SkillsBuild courses in subjects linked to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, cloud computing, cybersecurity, and new emerging technology lessons as well job readiness. Students in grades 9–12 in high schools can benefit from our individualized educational approach by developing a passion for learning and confidence in their abilities. This will help them build a solid foundation of vital professional skills.
