2020 #VWEDU: Can schools be preparing students for future work, if working online is not part of the curriculum?

Can schools be preparing students for future work, 
if working online is not part of the curriculum? 

The old way of teaching does not work any more. It never did work very well for a lot of students.  Not even for students who figured out how to game it and so made good grades.  Sure we stored a lot of knowledge, but we never learned how to use most of it.  Because it was only good for passing tests and that is not what adults need to do.   
Not the workplace 
of the future

The problems


Learning by practice

Building self-confidence

Assignments that teach it

Libraries as educators
