The report reveals that there is a clear need for a more coherent digital strategy, with the current lack of guidance and prioritising of narrow performance targets creating a climate of inertia in schools when it comes to tech. More than one-third (36 per cent) of teachers say they know that technology can fundamentally improve results in schools, but nearly half (46 per cent) rarely use the technology in their classrooms, primarily because they don’t know how to effectively integrate it into teaching and learning.

The report poses multiple relevant issues that leave us with even more unanswered questions, such as:
- How do we curate digital educational content for the youth?
- How can we ensure the safe navigation of an inherently open source of information that is the internet?
- Should access to technology in the classroom be encouraged or limited?
