People have quite different views on the role that digital technology can and should play in schools. But we just can’t ignore how digital tools have funda­mentally transformed the world around schools. „Totally wired,“ – that’s our image of most 15-year-olds and the world they inhabit. Students unable to navigate through the complex digital landscape are no longer able to partici­pate in our social, economic and cultural life. Technology must play a central role if we want to provide teachers with learning environments that support 21st-century methods of teaching and, most importantly, if we want to pro­vide children with the 21st-century skills they need to succeed.
