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).

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.
