We are teaching IT by connecting college students with real world experience.
tech in classroom, apps/digital information resources and content
data/databases, cloud computing, tools (IM, video conferencing, screen sharing)
Monitors, patient info, 3D printing (bio-ink), robotics, genetics & genomics
How well person can use digital technology, communications tools and networks to get an analyze information, communicate with "others" and perform practical tasks
5,000 test-takers 16 - 64
Findings of a research study that analyzed data from an assessment of adult competencies that tests cognitive and workplace skills
35 hours on average on digital media weekly
Nearly 6 out of 10 can't perform basic tasks
Ninety-one percent (91%) consider lack of computer skills irrelevant to job prospects
Only 37% consider recent graduates well prepared for new technologies
Person ranked at lowest level earns nearly 40% less ($2,920) monthly than at highest level ($6,622)
Take away: The assumption that America's first generation of 'digital natives' are tech savvy is wrong.
70% perform at lowest levels, can't perform basic tasks
We are growing IT by partnering with professionals to provide life-long learning opportunities.
