Technologie umgibt uns im Alltag wie selbstverständlich. Kultur der Digitalität. Kinder gehen damit deutlich „entspannter“ damit um als Erwachsene. Gerade das macht es aber für Erwachsene interessant: Was ist das eigentlich, mit dem die Kleinen so selbstverständlich „arbeiten“ und wie kann ich es für mich nutzen.

Now, given that picture of a rapid change of society, one would expect to see a rapid evolution of the institutions charged with preparing the young for it. We do not see this. We see a much slower rate of evolution of the school and that means we’re seeing a bigger and bigger gap between school and society. This gap is what I believe is responsible for the deterioration of performance in our schools and our educational systems. Because the children can see this; they can see that school is irrelevant. They feel that the pace of school and the mood of the school culture is out of sync with the society in which they live. And so it becomes harder and harder to get them to buy into the idea that school is satisfying their needs, that school is a bridge to the 21st century, as our political leaders keep on reiterating.
