    "students have to (first) be comfortable with the technology, (second) they have to understand the educational use of the technology, and (third) they have to adjust to new instructional methods that use technology.

    "Assumptions about young people's familiarity with technologies risk exacerbating inequality. Access to devices and connectivity isn't equal across all young people, and neither is support in developing skills - from peers, parent/carers, or schools, equally distributed.

They know a few things quite deeply, but they - as we did at their age - have no great appreciation of the subtleties of the tools. The expanse and use of the tools. The possibilities for tools that don't yet exist. They can push buttons, but they can't make them."
