 Generation Y: Educated, underemployed and in debt. http://www.reuters.com/article/ 2010/05/19/us-column-personalfinance- idUSTRE64I4M220100519 Current educational context, particularly Higher-Ed, can be considered a post scarcity economy, as one where there are unlimited information resources. Ryan Bubinski Co-founder CTO Codecademy,
 2014 @ ITP Talk. Also, millennials are the most educated, yet the most unemployed or underemployed. Pew Research Center, 2010. http:// usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/education/ 2010-02-24-millennials24_st_n.htm Learning occurs not as a response to teaching, but rather as a result of a social framework that fosters it.
 John Seely Brown.

 J.C.Herz.
