The role and remit of education leaders have seismically evolved during a time that demanded technology throughout all aspects of whole-institution management, teaching, and learning.
With EdTech becoming an absolute necessity in ensuring that #LearningNeverStops, education leaders are now presented with a range of challenges and priorities when driving forward long-term digital transformation:
- What practices, EdTech solutions, and tools should institutions retain from their time during the pandemic, and what else needs to be embedded going forwards?
- How can institutions streamline their core infrastructure, data systems, and learning platforms specific to their setting so that they can optimise efficiencies and rebalance workload?
- What are the cybersecurity risks associated with increased digitisation, and how can institutions best mitigate these risks so that their learners and staff can learn and work safely?
- How can institutions keep the momentum of digital transformation and address digital fatigue?
To unlock successful digital transformation, the need for human connection and collaboration has never been so apparent. It is vital to recognise the enhanced role and importance of parents, peers, industry, and the wider community in delivering teaching and learning. As the global education community transforms lessons learned into long-term strategy, investing time in developing partnerships and meaningful, human connections with these stakeholders have been – and will continue to be – integral in ensuring education for all.
