Preparing Students for 'all workplaces?'

After reading this article: "Working out of a 'third place', I couldn't help thinking about the classrooms and educational programs that are presently being taught around the world.

An interesting article that has to ask the question...."are we preparing our students for the jobs of the future?" This blogger thinks maybe not. A colleague and I were having this discussion the other day and she brought up the point that we are educating students for jobs that don't even exist yet. So WHY then are so many programmes still "boxing" learning into the same format as 20 years or so ago?

Would you feel comfortable teaching your class over the Internet from the coffee shop?

What do you think?
