We cannot avoid disruptive change in schooling since our context, our resources and our mission are evolving rapidly. Appropriate technology strategy must reflect emerging pedagogies, curriculum alignment and business alignment. Who gets a say on educational technology? How do technical decisions enact the values and culture of a school? When we imagine the way that our youngest users experience technology we can easily be mistaken. To understand this more sensitively we must engage children as stakeholders, and conventional user-consultation must change. In this session we discuss a case study in major change in a large K-12 school. We unpack the linkage between values, methodology and results: values such as connectedness and community, methodologies for engaging stakeholders ranging from young children to technical professionals, and results in the readiness and excitement for change.
