Live CPD sessions – Coming soon! 

Join Al Kingsley and Mark Anderson in their upcoming live CPD sessions on school digital strategy. Ask your questions, get involved and join the discussion! 

With the disruption to education caused by COVID-19 and an uncertain educational future ahead, it’s more crucial than ever that all school stakeholders can come together effectively to create a digital strategy that incorporates how edtech can be used effectively in-school and remotely. 

Recent events have prompted the authors of the immensely popular ‘Guide to Creating a Digital Strategy in Education’ – Mark Anderson (ICT Evangelist) and Al Kingsley (Chair of a multi-academy Trust and MD of NetSupport) – to update the guide to take account of the new landscape schools now have to navigate.

A brand new section on Communication and Collaboration looks at solutions for remote teaching and learning, using video communication tools, and provides guidelines for children, parents, teachers and schools on how to get the best out of them.

In addition, the guide now includes case studies from schools who have implemented and embedded their own digital strategies, alongside others demonstrating best practice for data governance and GDPR, as well as approaches to digital safeguarding.

With an updated resources page, feedback from readers and top educators and experts to follow on Twitter, version 2 of the guide is set to be a must-read!
