Coping With Changing Job Markets

In short, good information on job opportunities does exist. It should be accessed and discussed.

The Future of Teaching

Anyone who has taken lecture courses knows that there are good and bad lecturers. Is there any reason in the digital age that we depend on in-school teachers to give lectures? It makes no sense. Why not get great lecturers to digitalize materials that students can listen to on their own schedules. In-school teachers could oversee questions/discussions with students. This is effectively done in graduate schools where teaching fellows manage the follow-up discussions. 

Conclusions

The job market continues to change. But in the digital age, there are ways to better-equip students to take full advantage of the changes. And yes, having good teachers will always be important.

You are certainly right. And in this digital age there are more and more opportunities to skip the education system all together. I was watching an interview with some video gamers. They brought in millions of dollars in income per year from streaming their gaming on ad-revenue generating platforms like YouTube, sponsorships and tournament wins.

Some of these kids were in their early teens and had parents we were working traditional jobs making $50k per year. Many of these parents let their kids drop out of school (or for the really young ones, supposedly by homechooled) and focus on their gaming full-time. It blows my mind.

Makes me want to go back in time to when my parents would tell me to stop wasting my time playing video games and hit the books. They said no one ever made a penny from playing games. Boy did they turn out to be wrong.
