Education is Changing

Just finished reading Thomas Frey’s blog (http://www.wfs.org/blogs/thomas-frey) in which he talks about the changing nature of employment. His thoughts on education are incredibly perceptive, and relate well to how you, I and others will learn skills such as photography.

In the middle of all this we are transitioning from a teaching model to a learning model. Why do we need to wait for a teacher to take the stage in the front of the room when we can learn whatever is of interest to us at any moment?

Teaching requires experts. Learning only requires coaches.
