Ever heard of the app Musical.ly? Or what about ooVoo? If you haven’t, don’t worry – you’re like millions of others around the country trying to keep up with the latest apps and gadgets available to kids.

It’s hard to think of a child under five who probably hasn’t used the internet before, so children are now coming to school equipped with knowledge and desire around tech that could put some of us to shame. It therefore poses a challenge – albeit a healthy one – for the less technologically advanced of us to stay ahead.
