It does seem clear that individuals who cannot function in the transformed workplace have considerably fewer choices than those who can. Our intent is not to imply that education should be solely defined by the needs of corporate America. However, as educators we have the dual goals of helping people expand their minds and their productivity as citizens.

These tools are often portrayed as mechanistic, exterior, autonomous, and concrete devices that accomplish tasks and create products. We do not generally think of them as intimately entwined with social and biological lives.
