OUR RECOMMENDATIONS FOR DRIVING
DIGITAL STRATEGY IN SCHOOLS

THE CHALLENGE

Choosing & implementing digital learning tools

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.

One-third of UK teachers are unsure
how to integrate tech into their teaching.*

WHY IT MATTERS

Schools need a digital strategy

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 SOLUTION

Government guidance for a K–12 digital strategy

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.
