Recommendations

  • Evaluate the global communications systems that are available, and base this on infrastructure not devices (Clark, D).
  • Understand the power of global tools and communication networks and how they are being developed and used around the world (not just in the western world) in education and for learning.
  • Expand e-safety education to homes – insuring that schools are safe places for kids to use Internet is important, but it’s not enough. Parents have to be involved too.
  • Rethink the use of mobile technologies in schools. Rather than banning the pupils from using their personal technologies in schools, integrate them into formal teaching and learning. Explore how BYOD and pupils’ digital practices developed outside the classroom can be aligned with the curriculum and used to support formal learning and the development of digital literacies.
