Anybody who follows education trends knows that the digitalisation of schools and universities is a double-edged sword. If a school fails at digital transformation, it will also fail its students – it is now impossible to prepare young people for 2030 career success without at least some ed-tech. But on the other hand, it is not easy to digitalise an educational organisation. It’s a mammoth task that requires the two resources that schools least often possess: time and money.
It is now amply clear that things can change quickly and, regardless of location or socio-economic circumstances, it is all too easy for young people to be left behind. We have everything to gain from taking action now.
