Presently learning is not entirely doing what it should suppose to do. Even the little
fraction which it is doing is not correctly done. Many individuals nowadays deny learning. The

ignore opportunities frequently claiming to leverage technology that they own (Quinn, 2014).
There is a lack of understanding of real opportunities that technology can give. Furthermore,
