Does Not Compute, a research brief recently released by Change the Equation, shares powerful and compelling data about millennials and their technological knowledge.

  • 58% of millennials are not skilled in using technology to solve problems.
  • 88% of millennials with low tech skills believe that their lack of skill won’t hurt their employment & advancement possibilities.
  • On a scale of 1 to 3, people with Level 3 technological skills earn 2x what those with below Level 1 skills earn—with data controlled for race, gender, educational level, literacy, and numeracy.

Taken together, these three statistics highlight the importance of teaching students to leverage technology as a valuable tool for analysis, productivity, and learning and to recognize the value of these skills.
