Conclusion: the journey continues.In the 20th century, school was the place you went to learn; in the 21st century, because of digital technologies, children learn things at home which they don't or aren't allowed to at school. This makes the relationship between school, home and the community even more important than previously. Schools need to recognise this and use it to advantage. Schools, educational leaders and bureaucrats need to overcome their fear of digital technologies and embrace the challenge and opportunities.This book is the first major work which defines and explores the concept of the Networked School Community and details the challenges and opportunities of its implementation from the perspective of the system, the school, the teacher, the student, the home, and the parent.
