Students learn technology concepts through Techie Club

A Hyland volunteer works with Jordan Cleland and Daniel Xu during Techie Club.

Techie Club is a new partnership between the Westlake City Schools and Hyland Software designed to expose students to different technology concepts, to incite interest and encourage exploration.

The club includes hands-on, interactive lessons for third and fourth grade students. Topics include computer programming, web development, hardware, software, internet, digital and social media, technology careers and robotics.

Techie Club is comprised of up to 20 students and meets for an hour after school on Thursdays at Dover Elementary School throughout the school year. International Baccalaureate Coordinator Colleen Mudore is facilitating the program with the help of Hyland Software volunteers.

“The partnership with Hyland Software and the expertise of their volunteers allows our Techie Club students to be immersed in yearlong, in-depth technology instruction,” said Westlake Schools’ Project Link Supervisor Mike Waters, who brought the club to the district’s after school program.
