This sentence sounds similar to something I was just writing
about...though reading on in your post it's not really talking about
the same thing.  Nonetheless, I paste the paragraph for your possible
enjoyment .... [delete at will]

It is fairly obvious that computers can revolutionize education, but
now that every school has them, how does one actually realize all the
latent potential residing in all those computer labs? I don't believe
the details were ever very clear, just the general agreement that
computers _could_ improve education. There doesn't seem to be anything
fundamental about computers which affects some corresponding
fundamental aspect of education, for example, so it's not like it was
a revolution that was going to happen automatically. Furthermore, each
subject can only be "revolutionized" to an extent which depends on
software availability.

Keep on keepin' on ...
