      But has the education system changed its approach? There are different jobs than there were 20 years ago which is a partial reflection of technology but not sure how are systems have changed or accomodated the changes
  • Anecdotes like this are used to back calls for education systems to be transformed in order to cater to these computer-savvy students, who differ fundamentally from earlier generations of students: professors should move their class discussions to Facebook, for example, where digital natives feel more comfortable
