I understand how learning can be enhanced greatly with ICTs. It helps students to think for themselves, engage in higher order thinking through important investigation skills and develop necessary abilities that will be of great importance for their future. Most jobs students will have when they finish school possibly haven’t even been thought of yet. So yes they do need to develop these essential skills, however for a lot of things students still need to use hands on concrete material to develop understanding. A large proportion of students are VAK (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic) learners which justifies why they need to use hands on learning just as much. A balance of both is necessary.
