Here is a fascinating study into the use of technology in Canadian schools. Two statistics that stood out for me. Firstly, rather than digital natives it is often older, experienced teachers who are using and experimenting more with technology: you can’t beat experience and the confidence it brings. Secondly, students, “digital natives” (and I can see this with my own kids) need a lot of training to use these technologies effectively and safely. They can click but they are not necessarily very good at deciding what needs to be clicked on, or off.
