School curriculums often focus on developing basic skills in reading, math, science, and other fields. While critical to personal development and learning, these curriculums are often not designed to help students develop in-demand skills, especially around emerging technologies. In recent years, schools have begun partnering with tech companies and nonprofits to develop and teach curriculum on skills such as coding and cloud engineering, but this has not yet become widespread practice around the globe, and these offerings are typically separate from graduation requirements.
Goals and Objectives
Partner with leading tech companies and nonprofit organizations to develop curriculum that aligns with existing and projected needs of local, state, and national economies to help prepare students for good jobs after school.
Cloud platforms, virtual assessments, LMS, learning analytics and AI, virtual learning tools/platforms, MOOCs
Use Case Summary
Institutions partner with private sector technology companies to embed skills training directly into course curriculums. Embedded courses will be online or in-person classes, with courses that are for credit and part of a graduating curriculum but linked to, provided by, and taught by a specific private sector partner. Curriculums are continuously updated as the skill needs of tech companies and the broader workforce shifts.
