We have already crossed the threshold to a global and digital learning environment. Knowledge is at our disposal through a thin strand of fiber optic overload, but making sense and finding the needle of truth and discernment will require a highly ethical, informed, and wise student willing to learn for a lifetime. The changes in education might appear glacial but in fact are happening rapidly and deceptively fast all around us. I look forward to a quality future for education that has yet to be imagined.”
It’s tough to work remotely. Most people who can do it have a manager who cannot. Supervising remote workers is hard and you need a culture of accountability which most people are not able to establish, cultivate, and maintain. Working remotely requires consistency and transparency. It requires a high level of technical skill and integrity. Retire now if you have a manager who expects you to be available 7x24.
