Computer Science is arguably the most rapidly changing discipline in the world. What’s most troubling, and often overlooked, is that engineers graduating today frequently lack the level of real-world skills that they need in order to meet the standards of most employers. Why would this be the case?

It's a common experience for a person to be more proficient operating electronics than one's elders. The simple effect of immersion at a young age gives younger computer users an advantage over older people learning to use the same device. Simultaneously, the same systems over which a teacher is tasked to impart mastery to his or her students are developing even as the lessons carry on. In such a world, how can education in Computer Science be effective?
