  • Is the length of time students are engaging with technology an issue?
  • Is student engagement with technology outside of school the responsibility of the school, especially when it comes to matters of appropriate use, privacy and length of use?
  • How might schools work with parents and students to make links between home and school digital usage?
  • In what ways, if any, does your school have conversations with students about how they use technology outside of the classroom?
  • How might knowledge of student usage of technology be useful for teachers and the curriculum?
  • In what ways can schools address issues of access to technology and social media? Is this access essential?
