Professor David Hargreaves looks at how digital media is working in schools, for both pupils and staff, and argues that Generation Y, those born in the digital age, should become school leaders.

Young teachers' knowledge of new technology allows them to incorporate interactive technology into classroom learning.

Ringwood School in Hampshire, Bethnal Green Technology College, and Dunraven School in London, demonstrate how they have embraced the digital age.

Headteachers talk about how they have changed their management structures to reflect the less hierarchical preferences of Generation Y.

And teachers at Swanlea School in Tower Hamlets, and Connaught School in Waltham Forest show how they have included YouTube and Web 2.0 into their lessons.
