OUR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR DRIVING
DIGITAL STRATEGY IN SCHOOLS
As technology has become a fact of life for modern schools, so has the struggle to choose and implement the right tools for digital learning. While most educators agree that educational technology helps create a more engaging and self-directed learning environment, they’re less confident about how to use that technology.
Without a focused digital strategy, schools are more likely to face fragmentation, lack of adoption and even negative learning outcomes.To work towards a cohesive strategy for edtech, we launched a series of consultations with UK schools aimed at identifying ways to ensure that digital tools deliver a better experience for teachers and students.
The result of our in-depth sessions with UK educators and leaders from the Department of Education, BESA, FutureGov and Reform is an instructive report with concrete recommendations for developing a digital strategy. It highlights five key areas where Government guidance is needed to help schools integrate technology more effectively.
“This report clearly demonstrates that the education sector needs a comprehensive digital strategy in order to unlock opportunities for K–12 ... and guide the market towards better use of technology in education.”
At CanvasCon Europe 2017, our Director of International Communications, Rachel Matthews, with Rooks Heath College Music Teacher, Craig Ring, led a session titled “Driving Digital Strategy: Working Together to Drive Change & Make Education Better in Schools”.
