Abstract

What disconnects limit digital technologies (DT) in schools? There is a high correlation between student and educator digital literacy (DL) which fails to support digital native theory. A majority enjoy having DT and opportunities to be ‘creative’ and ‘innovative’ but disconnects are found in DL gained at home, training needs and use of the Internet. School lockdowns and security undermine enthusiasm and prevent effective classroom use of DT. This is likely to be related to poor leadership and decision making processes.
