Education Innovations

15 November 2022 | 12:00 - 12:20 | English | Turning your digital vision into strategy and practical implementation

This session could explore the key elements of a digital vision and subsequent strategy, the questions to ask and the lessons learnt from others. Al takes a view that EdTech is not something just for the techies, but should be accessible and understandable to all, empowering everyone to be part of the conversation in their school. He has not only written the book on Digital Strategy, but has served on Trust boards, advised IT leaders and written internationally on best practice. Participants will leave with the ability to map out the basic elements for their school, from selecting solutions, measuring impact and build on lessons learnt.
