Pike Township teachers will join local technology company leaders for the inaugural Teacher TechConnect gathering at Pike High School’s Freshman Center. The event is designed to help close a talent gap by helping teachers bring tech into the classroom and to better equip them to guide students of all abilities into the careers of tomorrow.
- The U.S. high-tech software and services jobs sector is outpacing all other sectors, growing at 34.4 percent — Central Indiana ranks 8th in the nation.
- Indiana workforce experts predict demand for tech employees will continue to exceed supply.
- Technology jobs are currently being created faster than they can be integrated into elementary and high school curricula.
- Workforce experts say 65 percent of today’s schoolchildren will be employed in jobs that have yet to be created.
