When I look at young people today, I see a paradox. I see young people that are confidently consuming technology, but very few of them are actually creating or inspired by the role that technology is going to play in their future lives. We call that at BT the tech literacy paradox.

The fact that young people don’t really grasp the role that technology will play in their future is actually a whole society challenge and that requires a whole society response - to build a culture of tech literacy where we really value tech skills alongside numeracy and literacy is a big change and that’s why we are working with government, we’re working with educators, we’re working with industry-players to come together to create a response to that.
