The world’s largest tech companies, richest tech billionaires, and most advanced technological inventions: What Do They Have in Common? They all originate from the United States.


A History Marked by Technological Achievements

In 2013, Germany introduced the concept of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” referring to the fourth major breakthrough in technological advancement—creating significant changes on a global scale. “Big Data,” “IoT (Internet of Things),” and “A.I. (Artificial Intelligence)” are key technologies of this revolution, all of which were developed in the United States. Clearly, Americans are at the heart of modern science and technology, with inventions that will profoundly change how we think and operate in the upcoming decades—the era of automation.

But it wasn’t until in the 21st century that Americans showcased their technological prowess. Over 250 years ago, an American physicist named Benjamin Franklin invented electricity—a discovery that permanently transformed humanity and ushered us into an unprecedented era of development. On January 1, 1983, the internet was born in the U.S., marking a new chapter for mankind. In the early 2000s, smartphones and online applications were widely introduced in the U.S. and quickly sparked a global craze, dominating the world today with an estimated 5 billion people using smartphones daily. All the crucial technological milestones that changed the world have originated from the United States—past, present, and future. Not only on a universal scale, but even in more specialized branches, the U.S. clearly demonstrates its technological superiority. Among the top 10 global education apps on both iOS and Android platforms, seven are from the U.S. Over the past five years, the U.S. has spent $328.548 million on technology development, leading the world, tripling the second-ranked China, and twelve times more than the third-ranked United Kingdom. Americans spare no expense on science and technology because they understand it’s the key to mastering the future. Technology is emphasized in American education at all levels.


Key Policies for Technology in Education

Americans understand that we live in a technology-dominated world. In fact, global technology usage is growing at a rapid pace. Research shows that Americans today use technology 47% more than a generation ago. We must adapt to a new life where technology occupies a significant daily portion. With the rapid growth of technology, graduates from technology education programs are particularly attractive to potential employers. The U.S. government pays special attention to the development and teaching of technology. Three out of the ten highest-paid jobs in the U.S. are technology-related. This emphasis encourages students to pursue technology-related careers from a young age. Among the top 10 technology universities in the world, five are from the U.S., with renowned names like Harvard, MIT, and Stanford. These universities not only attract top talent from around the globe but also drive advanced research and technological innovation. The strong emphasis on STEM education ensures a continuous supply of highly skilled professionals ready to face future challenges. “Silicon Valley” is seen as a symbol of the technological paradise, the top destination for tens of millions of science and technology students worldwide.

The U.S. has all the best conditions to attract students to pursue technology. The goal of technology education in middle and high schools is to create a technologically literate society, where individuals have the skills to make appropriate decisions in the digital space. Students are prepared with technological knowledge and critical thinking from a young age. Many students report being thoroughly prepared for technology-related job opportunities later on. The employment rate for IT workers in the U.S. is always high. In 2022, the industry created approximately 267,000 new jobs, higher than the 54,000 in 2021.
