Boston, MA, April 29, 2015 –(PR.com)– On Friday, April 24th, Dr. Nish Sonwalkar, Founder and President of EdwiseTech Inc. (d.b.a intellADAPT), attended the White House Upskill Summit, joining 150 employers, labor leaders, foundations, non-profits, educators and tech innovators from across America who are answering the President’s call to action and equipping workers of all ages with the skills they need to advance into better-paying jobs.
In response to President Obama’s call for action, EdwiseTech Inc. (dba intellADAPT) has committed to partner with the high-tech industry to deploy 100 nano-adaptive mobile apps to develop critical technology skills in areas, such as, algebra, kinematics, computer aided design and manufacturing, biotechnology, nanotechnology, advance analytics, and programing in Ruby to name a few. These nano-adaptive apps will be made available to workers through labor unions, non-profit foundations, and for-profit skill development ventures to reach over 1 million workers by 2017.
Over 3 million high paying jobs are unfilled because of a lack of skilled workers in high-tech industry. The competency gap is widening as fewer workers are getting skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM fields). EdwiseTech Inc. has developed a patented Adaptive 2.0 platform with National Science Foundation SBIR funding that allows delivery of skill development modules directly to workers’ mobile phones and tablets. The adaptive learning modules, nano-adaptive apps, provide 15-30 minute skill development courses on Android, iOS, and Windows smart phones and tablets at an extremely affordable cost.
