Generally, the problem in the field of Education is that cultural lag-time is stratified mostly by age and wealth factors. With regard to age, generally, we have students more IT-competent than teachers, administrators, and policy-makers. With IT-integrated so deeply into our lives that makes school systems look arcaic if not ridiculous. The greater disconnect (Drucker predicted the Age of Discontinuity) is that school systems have not been reengineered aroundf IT to be faster, better, cheaper. This could lead to extinction (ala the dinosaurs) by replacement - just look at the rate of death of colleges.
