Nature and Context

Including digital content education for our youth is going to be vital to their success in the modern business world. Incorporating this kind of technical education into normal schooling may seem expensive or impossible, but by pairing students with workers experienced in the field as a sort of mentoring program, today's youth may have access to learning tools they haven't yet had.
