IT-oLogy Expands Services to Include K-12 Private Tutoring
Columbia, S.C.—(Oct. 14, 2020)—IT-oLogy is now offering private tutoring workshops for K-12 students in various information technology subjects. Students will be taught by one of IT-oLogy’s certified instructors during a two-hour virtual workshop. The cost of each workshop is $50, and all students are welcome regardless of current skill level.
IT-oLogy offers several workshop topics for students that wish to build their skills with Python, Scratch and Java coding. These specialized workshops allow students to explore the field of information technology in a way that traditional schooling doesn’t. To inquire about booking a virtual workshop please contact IT-oLogy’s Director of Programs, Kristy McLean, at [email protected].
“Many students aren’t introduced to Information Technology until the end of their K-12 careers. We’ve created unique, live instructor-led programs to introduce students to IT at much earlier ages so that they have the opportunity to fully explore their interests in the field,” said Tammy Mainwaring, President of IT-oLogy.
All of IT-oLogy’s core K-12 programs align with the South Carolina Department of Education Computer Science Standards, ITEEA Standards in Technology Literacy, and ISTE National Education Technology Standards. IT-oLogy aims to offer the most customizable program solutions for educators and parents to impact as many K-12 students in South Carolina as possible.
IT-oLogy’s mission is to attract, engage, and educate future IT talent to address the IT skills crisis that South Carolina is facing. It does this through offering innovative, interactive, high-quality programs designed for K-12 and college students, career changers, veterans and IT professionals. Founded by BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, the University of South Carolina and IBM in 2008, IT-oLogy was launched as a new initiative for South Carolina. In July of 2015, IT-oLogy was awarded 501(c)3 status as a nonprofit organization. IT-oLogy is committed to bringing together businesses, parents, educators and community leaders to close the IT skills gap in South Carolina.
