Digital transformation is reshaping every aspect of our lives – how we live, learn, and work. This transformation impacts the skills students need to succeed both in the workplace of today and in the future, when they will be tasked with solving the most complex issues of any generation in history.
As a company, Microsoft has a vested interest in the skills economy that will drive future breakthroughs in innovation.
Further, as parents, colleagues and citizens, we feel compelled to help support digital transformation in Higher Education, so that every student has an opportunity to learn what we call future-ready skills.
So, what can we do to help?
To help students acquire future-ready skills, we believe there are three key focus areas we must address in the near term:
1.Support future-ready skills curricula while ensuring learning tools are accessible to all students
2.Empower institutions with tools to improve student engagement, experiences, and outcomes
3.Create safe and secure learning environments in the classroom and online
