This project addresses the long-standing question of why digital technologies have largely failed to have a consistent impact on the core processes of schools and schooling. The overarching aim of the project, therefore, is to identify the socio-technical adjustments that might be made within schools to facilitate 'better' uses of digital technology. Using an innovative combination of large-scale surveying, in-depth ethnographic study and critical participatory design, the project will: (i) provide rich insights into why digital technologies are often not being used to their full potential in schools; and (ii) actively collaborate with school communities in experimenting and constructing alternatives.
