It's the conclusion I've come to. After 6 months of studying IT, it seems to me that a lot of the teachers there have a pretty old-fashioned, almost out-dated.. approach to teaching computing. Like I've said, I've learned far more programming, web-design, etc. from YouTube tutorials, and far more quickly .. than I have in any one of my college courses. Not all teachers are made equal though .. I really liked how the Technical Skills teacher arranged our classes. He used to sometimes bring in broken ipads, damaged laptops, etc. .. put it on the table, and tell us to disassemble them, and re-assemble them. He even brought a robotics kit and VR lenses for us to play around with. It's a pity that only 20% of the original class ended up sticking out through the end of the course.. because his class was a morning class, and they were too lazy to get up in the morning. There were only like .. 5 of us, just the week before study week. Only thing I didn't like about him is the fact that he pretty much just gives you a tick for everything without double-checking to see if your answers are right.. I think he was way too easy on us, but I do like his hands-on approach to learning. Practical learning. Also - the workforce just doesn't work the way it used to anymore. People are more likely to work 3 part-time jobs than a single, 9-5 full-time job where you can walk in every day and stay there for life. It used to be that most people could get a job and then stay there for 20-40 years until retirement .. but those days are gone. Our economy is diversifying, for the good or the bad. You'd better be a jack-of-all trades. They're already creating Virtual Reality apps that allow you to watch qualified surgeons performing on real patients, for medical students. They also have these robotic gloves that allow someone to remote-control your hand movements. Self-teaching will soon become the norm. It's a pity that some people have to suffer homelessness and poverty due to our unwillingness to provide a floor for everyone to stand on .. but .. on the other hand, maybe it's good that people are suffering .. because then they will be motivated to do something about it. Others of course will blame it on immigration and international trade .. ... but then, that's a good thing too. People need to see for themselves whether their political systems work out or not. The truth will always come out the winner in the end.
