Digital technology is now a key feature of delivering modern education. However, the fact that it is by nature a fast-moving and ever-changing field can present challenges for those trying to use it.

The discussion considers when we should expect to retire a particular technology, which sometimes happens outside our control, before we are ready or earlier than expected.
