When I graduated from high school in the ‘70s, the path from school to career was pretty straightforward, even for a kid from rural Niagara County, New York. Agriculture was vibrant; Kodak and Xerox were down the road in Rochester. Technology generations lasted years, not months, and we didn’t have to worry about competition from China, India and the developing world.

Today, the challenges are a whole lot bigger, with technology driving the global economy at an ever-increasing pace. For example:

  • 2.4 billion people are connected to the Internet.
  • 6 billion people have mobile devices.
  • Network power, processor speeds and storage capacity are increasing exponentially.

As a result, the technology content of every business and every job is rising – and so is the educational bar for our kids.
