Fastolfe, the good news is there's no reason your conditions can't be met... it will take a shift at the primary school level to give children the skills they need to use digital media, as well as a shift at the textbook level to provide the material in appropriate packages.

The downside there is that those processes will take time for experimentation to find the most efficient ways of doing those things, then creation and dissemination of materials, teacher training to be able to teach it... and the tools are already here, begging to be used. The tools provide a temptation to do real-world experimentation, which could be disastrous for those students who are taught by a system that proves inefficient down the line.

Any way you slice it, it is going to take years, perhaps decades, to work out the most efficient way to use digital hardware in the classroom, prepare the materials and train teachers to apply it. In some cases, you shouldn't rush change, no matter how badly you might want to. But you still must embrace it and go forward.
