As the digital economy continues to evolve, business and government leaders are relying on education systems to produce graduates that can thrive in the workplace of the future, with technical AI knowledge being some of the most sought-after skills of all. However, as demand for greater digital literacy and technical skills among graduates grows, businesses are struggling to meet their needs. In Southeast Asia alone, nearly 70 percent of tech hiring managers say it takes more than three months to fill an open tech position, with only a small number of applicants possessing the necessary skills to secure a job offer.
In this session, William Tan Boon Wee, Section Head / Artificial Intelligence, Institute of Technical Education (ITE), Singapore, will share with Intel’s Audrey Lim his approach to engaging students—ages 17 through 73—in learning coding and AI skills. ITE’s AI programs encourage students to pursue their interests via technology-supported projects that help build design thinking skills. Close partnerships with industry motivate ITE students toward internship and career goals and provide resources for in-class learning. Join us to be inspired by Tan’s stories of students’ successes and l hear classroom-tested strategies for engaging and preparing students for the workforce of the future.
