World of Great ExpectationsEmployers/Parents expect graduates to be:Creative and Job readyReady to thrive in the Digital Age Cope with the challenges of the 21st century Think critically, Solve problems Rapid economic and social changesdemand of NITDA to prepare the citizenry for jobs that are yet to be created, technologies that have not yet been invented and problems that we don't yet know will arise.Reality of Time Increasingly diverse customer base Increasing complexity of business structures and organizations Expanding mobile customers and increasing electronic communication Increasing economic importance of digital commerce and digital contentResultant Changes in Business EnvironmentThe impact or response to these trends is eitherFor the most part - "technology focused" Precipitated or facilitated by technology orRequired of skills that are predominantly and significantly technology related. These trends don't seem to suggest a strong need to teach "technology for technology's sake, but technology for fluency"Understanding the TrendFluency Attained when an act is accomplished with no noticeable cognitive or mental effort. Having a mastery of certain skills to the point of not requiring conscious attention.Digital fluency An evolving aptitude that empowers the individual to effectively and ethically interpret information, discover meaning, design content, construct knowledge, and communicate ideas in a digitally connected world. Digital fluency develops from digital literacy and requires that an individual be as comfortable using technology as they are reading the newspaperUnderstanding the New LanguageIC3 Digital LiteracyIT ProfessionalDatabase Administration Software DevelopmentHTML / GamingMicrosoft/HP Technology AssociateWeb TechnologiesPrint, Graphics and MediaAdobe Certified AssociateEngineeringConstructionAutoDesk CertificationsAccountingQuickBooks CertifiedOffice MngmntBusiness ProfessionalsLaw ProfessionalsMarketingFinanceMicrosoft Office SpecialistMicrosoft Certified EducatorIC HealthHeath-care ProfessionalsAcademia ProfessionalsPathway to Digital Fluency IT capability to leverage technology for business differentiationGAPNeed for Digital FluencySource: The 451 Group and The InfoPro - 201180% of all jobs and 98% of all college degrees requires capable and proficient use of computers and InternetIT challenge: the need for expertise The number-one inhibitor cited by business and IT leaders is sourcing the right expertise when and how companies need to acquire it. According to The InfoPro, when asked to name the number-one obstacle to adopting cloud services, ~60% of executives cited Lack of staff skills/shortage of expertise. They are reporting a competency gap; employees with relevant skills are difficult to come by. When you consider the rate of change in both business and technology that IT professionals must contend with in order to stay relevant, its no wonder this is the case. According to these leaders, two factors comprise this issue: Sourcing Businesses typically go about acquiring IT expertise in three ways: 1) they hire it, 2) they outsource it, or 3) they acquire it through service providers or cloud services. The IT organization of the future will be much smaller and more nimble, focusing internal resources on deeper and broader business expertise while leveraging service providers who bring deep technology expertise. This represents a whole different mindset for people entering the workforce. Many new IT professionals will become consultants on contract rather than employees.
