Elevate K-12 launches Java and Python courses to meet nationwide demand
The live streaming education provider has announced new computer science course offerings.
CHICAGO, September 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Elevate K-12, the Chicago-based live streaming education company, has announced the launch of Java and Python live streaming courses. These courses prepare high school students for a college-level programming education and successful careers in computer science.
The courses are structured as introductory courses in the programming languages Java and Python and there are no prerequisites.
“We’re excited to add this much-requested material to our catalog of courses,” he said Betsy McKibbin, Elevate K-12’s VP of Brand Marketing. “We want the students to experience this content and decide whether they want to pursue the topic further at university or at work.”
Studies indicate a positive correlation between economic growth and technological competence. While many school districts are interested in creating a programming curriculum, a staffing shortage is hampering their ability to do so.
Elevate K-12’s mission is to solve the country’s teacher shortage by bringing high-quality educational streaming to schools regardless of location. The result, evident in the rapidly growing number of counties partnering with Elevate K-12, is unprecedented educational equity.
“It’s a challenge to find qualified teachers in every zip code to teach these courses,” he said Shaily Baranwal, CEO of Elevate K-12. “In our commitment to improving the lives of students across the country, we are excited to offer these opportunities to our school districts.”
Elevate K-12 aims to create a universal computer science education and pave the way to a more progressive, prosperous future. The company sees the launch of Java and Python courses as a crucial next step.
“We truly believe in the value of these courses in achieving long-term, positive student outcomes,” Baranwal said. “We anticipate that demand for programming courses will continue to grow, and we stand ready to meet that demand as it arises.”
