Negative Impact
'The term digital native was originally used to describe the ‘new’ students of today that are all “native speakers” of the digital language of computers, video games and the Internet.'
'Social media's content only reflects who you interact with. Only have nice people, only see nice content.'

Allowing Personalisation
'It's becoming increasingly arduous to keep my class interested with just pen and paper for a full lesson, it just feels a little stagnant and almost like I'm not trying hard enough as a teacher.'

(Bloomfield: 2013)
Dissolving Boundaries
‘The modern classroom isn’t just the four walls, it’s a collaboration between parents, technology at home, global outlook and popular culture. We are moving away from just having a teacher that pours knowledge to a class of 30, children are more in control of their own learning.’
'With a mobile boom, learning games are a $1.5B market headed toward $2.3B by 2017 globally.'
Technology is:
- Dissolving boundaries
- Encouraging creativity
- Allowing higher levels of personalisation
- Educational Gaming

- Used and trusted by over 10,000 schools world wide.
- Used both in school and out, weekly reports emailed to parents
- Strong reward system and phenomenal improvement rates.
Example: Mathletics
The mobile app industry is expected to generate $38B by 2015 with 80% of the top selling apps falling into the educational category.'
The App Industry
'Games are a great way of getting our students to use the internet productively. We use Mathletics at Shottermill and we really have seen vast improvements.'
Help me build a school in the cloud where children can embark on intellectual adventures by engaging with and collecting information online.'
George Stephenson High School
