Student Technology Skills: Expectations vs. Reality
This Magna Online Seminar seeks to reveal the truth about students digital literacy and will examine the potential disparity between campus curriculum and employers expectations. Learn strategies for (re)implementing basic, necessary digital-literacy to help meet students learning needs without straying from your scheduled curricula.
Your students might not know what you think they do about technology.
And, you might not be teaching them the tech skills employers expect them to bring to the workplace. Recent studies show that Digital Natives might not have the proficiency for technology that older generations have long assumed they do, and that we’re overestimating the technical skills of the young adults we teach. To make things worse, the related skill sets that students are being taught in their courses with us are not the kinds of skills that their future employers most value.
Discover the expectations of students incoming technological competency vs. the reality of their ability to learn and use technological devices and programs. Understand employer expectations regarding the technological competency of their new employees vs. the types of technology skills actually being taught to students in higher education.
