Trades are impacted by digital technology; workers need to learn new skills. This Project explores how technology impacts the trades, which trades are most impacted, the skill demands created by using technology, and how tasks can be developed to prepare learners to use digital technology in the workplace.

The Project developed 24 apprenticeship-specific tasks for the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF) competency “Use Digital Technology”. The tasks are informed by the concept of “complex communication and problem-solving in technology rich environments (PS-TRE)”
