This introduction presents an overview of key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book discusses what we know of the life of the digital generation and the growing disconnect between experiences in and out of school. The author's research has encompassed the UK and other Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) members, particularly the US. The truth is that the reality of technology access and use in schools has changed little for the majority, and the questions asked regarding the role of technology in schools at the policy level remain remarkably similar even though the world of personal technology use beyond school is almost unrecognisable. Students who are allowed to use devices in school get better internet connectivity through their phones than through the school wifi. Pricing models for hardware and connectivity have made purchase and use affordable or at least manageable, enabling ownership to be extended to school-age students.
