The reality of globalization has put pressure on education systems to adjust to the increasing complexities and needs of an interdependent world. Education's purpose in developing responsible and productive citizens to fuel national growth has been supplanted as increasing competition and interdependence of a globalized world require students to be educated in order to become more productive international citizens. According to Schukar (1993), "Children in this country must be provided an education that more than adequately prepares them for citizenship in the society and world they will soon inherit" The advent of globalization has necessitated massive reforms in education. Thomas Friedman (2005) contends in his book, "The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century" that antiquity in the methods of learning and teaching have no place in the "flat" and "connected" world. Hence, digital technology, which he attributes to the world's "flattening", must be utilized to break down time and geographical barriers in education. Through it, the ascribed role to education as the great equalizer can fulfilled to a greater extent than the traditional educational methods.
