Over the past decade, technology has fundamentally transformed so much of our world – the way we meet people, build a business, explore neighborhoods. Technology has changed how we learn, how we work, and increasingly, the work that we do.

Software skills are in high-demand in the modern economy, and many tech companies struggle to find employees with these qualifications.  To ensure that our current and future workforce has the skills needed to fill these 21st century jobs, it’s time to reimagine the way students learn and the types of credentials that they earn.

AT&T and education industry leaders like Udacity and Maricopa Corporate College are participating in an event today hosted by the Center for American Progress to discuss innovative ways we can educate and prepare our workforce.  Through flexible, accessible and affordable training, such as Udacity’s nanodegrees (which we’re proud to be the pioneer corporate collaborator of) more learners will gain the skills needed by the tech industry, and more job seekers will be prepared for the jobs of the future.

It’s exhilarating to consider how education will continue to evolve over the next decade, and the opportunities technology offers learners across the globe.  Are you learning differently today?  How?  And, how do you see education changing tomorrow?
