As this year's college graduates hit the job market, the modern equivalent of that line might be software programming or artificial intelligence, or anything to do with the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math).
While software development skills are still desired by employers, a skill far more in demand is the ability to communicate.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, September 22, 2017 8:48 AM
The intersection of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) and personalized learning is a pool into which current technology has only begun to dip its toes, but it is a topic that conjures up fantastic (in the literal, J.K.
