During the Spring of 2012, PHASE 4 Learning Center had the opportunity to participate in Technology Consulting in the Community. Technology Consulting in the Community is a course within Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College Master of Information Systems Management (MISM) program, wherein a student from the MISM program collaborates with a non-profit community organization on a project that will “expand the capacity of the community organization to use, plan for, and manage technology,” while the student develops consulting and management skills. This was PHASE 4’s third opportunity to participate in the program and, once again, we were thrilled with the outcome of our project. Heinz College MISM candidate, David Waterman worked with PHASE 4’s Director of Operations, Dave Hayhurst, and Business Management Assistant, Lois Raphael, to design a new website for PHASE 4 Learning Center. In addition to the technical skill he brought to the project, David brought lots of fresh, new ideas and creative thinking too. The collaboration was a resounding success! PHASE 4’s new website allows us to share our students’ success stories with the public, to communicate our mission and goals to school district administrators and prospective donors, and to interact with the public through Contact pages and Post comments. Please visit our new website at: www.phase4learningcenter.org to read about PHASE 4’s Mission, to learn more about our programs, to see photos of current PHASE 4 events, to view creative videos written and directed by our students, and to find out about a Learning Center near you!
