Think about it, if we are to raise the performance of all members of society (and I think you will agree this is a laudable aim), those who are not succeeding at present will need support and help from the more fortunate members of society. And there is a great deal of latent ability which is not tapped; which is, in fact, trapped inside many individuals. This is implicit in the writings of Vygotsky (1962) who developed the notion of the zone of proximal development; a notion that is increasingly being used in the field of computers and artificial intelligence in education (Lajoie and Derry, 1993).
