    As a former president of Princeton University, an economist, and author of many books on education, Education in the digital age book the acclaimed bestseller The Shape of the River, Bowen speaks with unique expertise on the subject. For many of us, the underlying technologies that are driving social change remain a mystery and that is a problem.

The future will be full of tremendous opportunities, but it will also be a world of tremendous uncertainty. Such uncertainty creates a huge challenge for educators.

    A similar logic can be seen in other fields. It proposes palliative measures where much more structurally radical changes are in order.

But the challenges, which are organizational and philosophical as much as technological, are daunting.
