I am not quite sure how pupils can use 'unfamiliar' technologies 'confidently' and 'responsibly? Or this aspect has to do with the assumptions that pupils can acquire skills to use new and unfamiliar technologies by manipulating objects or through collaboration?

'Unfamiliar technologies' Is used to refer to technologies that are new to the pupils when they start learning about them. The term 'new technologies' was considered because it is not that they are new per se but that they are unfamiliar to the pupils when they start learning about them. I agree it sounds contradictory to be able to use something that is unfamiliar!
