In this paper, we pose the opinion that current educational institutions are unable to fulfil the requirements of the future. As change is a permanent phenomenon, we link to the statement of Peter Drucker: “The greatest risk of turbulent times is not the turbulence - it is to act with yesterday's logic”. This future orientation implies that it is hard to prove our findings in analysis and quantitative statistics. Our assumption is that the future of education can only be ensured by enriching traditional education with new innovative and co-creational ways of educating by intensive use of IT. In that sense, the character of this paper is a positioning paper, to sketch the base for current and future research.
