Many commentaries have been published proposing the identity of the contemporary learner that is related to the availability of ICT. This paper reports a study into the identities of primary learners that develop as a result of use of ICT in social groups. The range of identities of learners is not a one-size-fits all, suggesting that the diversity of learners in the classroom is increased by ICT use in social groups. Consequently, teachers are challenged by a continuum of diversity that extends far beyond the diversity of previous times. The nature of this diversity requires attention by teachers and the design of approaches related to ICT in the classroom that is consistent with it. This paper outlines implications for consideration by teachers.
