    do However it is essential that teachers recognize that it is acceptable not to be computer coders and that they can and should ask students for help with technology They need to be able to give up the traditional role where the teacher should know everything and instead focus upon being pedagogic experts The future school will in the eyes of an expert be more connected to the society Students will gather information and knowledge outside of the school Digital equipment will be used in knowledge gathering and sharing In classrooms and other learning surroundings this information will then be analyzed and discussed together with others and the teacher will function as the leader of the learning process With the help of technology student will be able to receive immediate feedback of their school work Future learning surroundings will make use of traditional and modern learning solutions Technology will be present however not replacing face to face learning Teachers should help students conceptualize things and find meaning in the learning material As new technology is developed all the time schools do not know in which technology to attach themselves One solution as already mentioned could be the use of students own digital equipment Therefore schools could buy digital devices for those students who do not have the possibility to buy their own Technological developments may change the daily life of the school system a lot Therefore decisions now considered is if students should really use their time to learn things that can quickly be searched from the internet Also the role of a school book will be considered Will paper books be replaced completely with digital books or maybe even changeable learning surroundings were the students themselves are producers of the content Then a school book would not be just
