The kids didn’t care about what they had, “it doesn’t matter at all to them,” one of their teachers said. And as I watched it reflected on something our Chief Information Officer has said many times, there is a big difference in how elementary kids approach digital devices and how high school kids approach digital devices, and suddenly it deeply clicked for me:
