About The Webinar

Understanding the Need for an Effective Digital Strategy in Modern Education | Primary

This webinar will provide headteachers, senior leaders and teachers with guidance and advice on understanding the importance of developing and implementing a clear digital strategy which can support a more effective and efficient ed tech infrastructure.

Research has shown that 84% of headteachers noted that technology had or would contribute to improved pupil attainment. Digitally literate staff, who have been trained, empowered and guided by a clear and effective digital strategy bring immense value to any school, and are able to pivot and adapt quicker when the educational landscape shifts due to the undergirding digital infrastructure that exists today.

In this webinar, Brendan O’Keeffe, head of computing and a director of digital learning, explores the advantages of an effective digital strategy in education, how settings may look to draw up a modern plan, as well as the impact of a having no clear or uniform long-term approach.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the intrinsic nature of digital infrastructure and recognising that it is disproportionately distributed but pervasive

  • Exploring guidance around developing an effective digital strategy, as well as understanding the compounding benefits of a digitally literate staff body

  • Observing the various systems that are supported by digital strategy and how offering clear guidance is likely to offer improvements in a range of areas

  • Recognising the range of benefits of an effective digital strategy and being aware of the effectiveness if implemented properly

  • Analysing the negative outcomes of poorly prepared or non-existent digital strategy, including resentment from those who are being overly relied upon
