The Department of Education and NYC Digital today announced the launch of Digital Ready, an intensive professional development and technology expansion program to help NYC public high schools use technology and student-centered learning to improve students’ readiness for college and careers.

Digital Ready connects students with NYC’s vibrant tech community to provide real-world learning experiences and to help them develop the skills to succeed in today’s digital workforce.

Students gain digital literacy skills while receiving hands-on work opportunities, internship experience, and mentors from local tech companies. Teachers build digital resources into their lesson plans, use new media tools and work with partners to engage students in digital technology careers.

The program has launched in 10 high schools for the 2013-2014 academic year, and will expand to 10 additional schools, including middle and high schools. Digital Ready schools today:

•  Academy for Innovative Technologies

•  Bronx Academy for Software Engineering

•  Bronx Compass High School

•  Brooklyn International High School

•  City As School

•  Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School

•  Frederick Douglass Academy VII

•  Hillcrest High School

•  Hudson High School for Learning Technologies

•  Satellite Academy High School

Partners involved with Digital Ready include: the American Museum of Natural History, Apple, Artsy, Beam Center, BRIC Arts Media, Brooklyn College Community Partnership, Eyebeam, Dream Yard, Global Kids, Google, Iridescent, the LAMP, Mozilla Hive NYC Learning Network, Museum of the Moving Image, NPower, NYC Salt, Scenarios USA, ScriptEd, Skillfeed and Tribeca Film Institute, among others.

Digital Ready is one of many City programs that focus on digital literacy for personal and professional development. Visit the Digital Roadmap to learn about the City’s range of digital education initiatives.
