P-Tech is “a new model for secondary education” that trades classrooms for “innovation spaces” and offers students group collaboration and hands-on learning. The Northern Area Health Education Center (NAHEC) partners with the Northern Borders Academy to run this program which provides students with innovative learning and career development opportunities in Health Sciences, Human Services, Chemical Dependency Counseling, and Criminal Justice pathways.
Originally, P-Tech lacked a website to represent and promote its program or offer a digital space that allowed students and faculty to interact. As a strategic technology partner, HWNY was contracted by NAHEC to build an HWapps website and implement digital solutions that could assist P-Tech in recruitment efforts and allow for more engaging interactions between students and teachers through an awesome digital platform.
Key highlights of P-Tech’s HWapps platform include:
- Homepage for promoting the Program and providing crucial resources to current and potential students and administrators
- Digital resources for students to access all in one place
- News & Updates
- The Career Coach Portal where students and a Career Coach can engage, share information and resources, and manage homework assignments digitally from the web-based platform
- Program application management
