When educating school leaders, one simple way to open their eyes is to ask the question ‘What can a 15-year-old do or experience today that you could not do when you were 15?’ Given a few minutes to think about this, they will come up with a series of responses such as ‘iPhones’, ‘Facebook’, ‘laptop computers’ and so on. It is clear that school leaders recognize that there has been substantial change in the types of technology available to young people today, most of which we as adults feel less comfortable about than they do. However, when they are probed further, they come to recognize that it is not just technology that has changed, but pretty much everything else too, some of it on the back of technology, but other things not so.
