Somewhere in a school near you some teacher is struggling to handle a query from a student whose laptop has a flat battery,or another who is watching an amusing cat video on a phone. Perhaps the wireless internet connection is dropping in and out,or the electronic whiteboard is playing up. Whilst all teachers are expected to integrate technology into the classroom, the reality can be very different. Some of the issues teachers can face relate to the technology itself. Others relate to student or parent expectations, or whether there’s enough of the right professional development available to help the teachers become proficient in digital technology. Without addressing these concerns, there is a risk of creating a generation of students ill-prepared for a digital future.
