Digital Strategy Guide
With more technology in schools than ever before, it makes sense to have a digital strategy in place that embraces how your edtech can be used effectively – not only for teaching and learning, but to improve efficiency, save time and money, and more.
Part of this process is understanding:
- What EdTech the school has
- How it’s used
- How to use it more effectively.
In this latest version, we look at solutions for flexible teaching and learning, as well as using video communication tools – and provide guidelines for children, parents, teachers and schools on how to get the best out of them.
In addition, the guide now includes voices from schools across the world who have implemented and embedded their own digital strategies, alongside others demonstrating best practice for online safety and data management.
With an updated resources page, feedback from readers and a revised list of top educators and experts to follow on Twitter, version 3 of the guide is set to be a must-read!

About the authors
I am a former school leader with more than twenty years of experience in the classroom, leading successful faculty departments, being a local authority lead teacher for my subject, and independent strategic consultant and trainer. I am a passionate advocate for the purposeful use of technology linked to pedagogy and I know the power and importance of student voice in developing sound practice, having co-founded the Digital Leader Network in the UK. I am also an Apple Distinguished Educator, Google Certified Innovator, Microsoft Certified Educator and expert in mobile learning and associated pedagogies. I am also Head of Education at NetSupport.
Most of the time, I am CEO of NetSupport with over 30 years’ experience in educational technology and digital safeguarding. In addition to my role at NetSupport, I have a passion for education and, in particular, governance and raising organisational performance. With that in mind, I am Chair of two Multi Academy Trusts, the area’s Governors’ Leadership Group and the county SEND Board – as well as being a member of the Regional Schools Directorate, and the Local Authority Education Scrutiny Committee. I continue to enjoy supporting other schools with mentoring and speaking at events about all things edtech, and have authored two books: My Secret #EdTech Diary and My School Governance Handbook (available October 2022).
