New technological proposals continue to pour in, will we know how to use them?

The easy answer is that we can very well do without these technologies and stick to traditional practices... if we accept being gradually sidelined; many are taking this route in education. It is understandable for teachers to stick to simplicity and choose pedagogy over technology. This does not alleviate the feeling of being overwhelmed by this ubiquitous technicality.

The assumption that digital natives are all tech-savvy is false. Schools can really help keep their students in the loop if they themselves know how to prioritize what will soon become essential, that generic technological knowledge base that is beginning to take shape.

They can also set an example on the accessibility side by adopting methods that will ensure that no one is left out because the entrance to the digital world is closed to them because of a disability.
