Multimedia with summary
The newly released platform, Open P-TECH, is a free digital education experience launched by IBM to equip young people, aged 14-20, and educators with foundational knowledge about topics like cybersecurity, AI and cloud computing, plus professional skills like Design Thinking and Agile.
After students complete coursework in AI and cloud computing, they receive "digital badges" that can be added to their resumes, demonstrating their knowledge and skills as they apply for employment or higher education. Additionally, teachers can access a student dashboard and lesson plans to monitor progress and extend learning on the platform. See below for details on how to share.
