Funny, I had exactly the same thought when I read John Naughton's piece today. OK, he's talking about 21 year-olds... but today's school students are - for their age - even more advanced Digital Natives. It's a must-read.

EXtract: "These kids have been socially conditioned in a universe that runs parallel to the one inhabited by most folks in the media business. They've been playing computer games of mind-blowing complexity forever. They're resourceful, knowledgeable and natural users of computer and communications technology. They're Digital Natives - accustomed to creating content of their own - and publishing it. (Remember the motto of YouTube: 'Broadcast yourself!')"

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential.
