With the future still uncertain, digital plans for schools have taken on a new significance and we must ensure that ed-tech can be used effectively both in-school and remotely. Al Kingsley offers some advice and reflections

Whether you are starting a digital strategy from scratch or simply adapting it, the first thing to do is reflect. As well as identifying the areas that are digital priorities, it is also necessary to look backwards to get a clear picture of the technology currently used in your school – and if or how that has changed during the lockdown. You can then decide which solutions are effective and are delivering impact.

The word “impact” itself can sometimes be a barrier as it may give the impression that everything must deliver measurable evidence of progress. However, it can be more than that. It is about saving time. It is about saving resources. It is about promoting wellbeing – and much more. Some of those things are less tangible when it comes to measurement.
