What will school look like when this generation are the teachers?

In 8 years my oldest son's cohort will be qualified teachers.  They are the first cohort who had BYOD,  Google docs, flipped learning, ubiquitous wireless, personal blogging etc.    Not just that, they have a type of innate wisdom.  They've been raised on circle time and treaties and restorative justice.  They've been asked to think, challenge, debate with their teachers, and to investigate the world as if they have a right to change it.  What will school look like when these people are the teachers?
