The Enterprise Center in Chattanooga has multiple open positions for a new statewide program that will offer digital skills training for early child care educators, according to a social media post from Sammy Lowdermilk, Digital Equity Program Lead of the organization.
Named the “Tech Goes Home TN for Early Child Care Agencies and Educators (TGHTN ECCA&E),” the new program is an expansion of the Center’s digital inclusion program, “Tech Goes Home Chattanooga,” and is funded through a contract with the Tennessee Department of Human Services and Signal Centers, Inc.
Since 2015, “Tech Goes Home Chattanooga” has trained more than 5,500 in digital skills, including 220 early childhood educators. Early childhood educators who have completed the program have reported meaningful impact in their personal and professional lives, opening up possibilities for continued education and certifications, as well as increased ease in completing tasks online and improved communication with family.
