Our children’s immersion in education technology isn’t going to slow down, which means technology-related privacy and security can’t either. We’re never going to reach a point where we put our pencils down and say, “We’re all safe and secure now, so we don’t need to worry anymore.”
The future of work has arrived. the enforced shift to remote working in 2020 largely proved a surprise for business leaders, many of whom found that, contrary to their expectations, productivity did not plummet.
The shift to remote and hybrid learning catalyzed by the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted many challenges and inequities in our current education system. One such challenge that has recently been at the forefront of my mind is digital poverty, the inability to interact fully with the online world — when, where and how an individual needs.

With technology becoming increasingly present in classrooms, it’s an exciting time for education. Teachers everywhere recognise its possibilities for innovation, communication and learning, but it is still the case that some feel daunted…
I have long thought about the interplay between knowledge and skills. I can’t help thinking that, with all the technology around us, aren’t we now living in a world where we’ve moved past this?
Teachers know that the more parents and carers participate in their children’s learning from an early stage, the more effective that learning will be. What’s more, a parent’s engagement with their first child’s learning also brings benefits for siblings.
As the pandemic swept through the country, school leaders understood two things: they needed to make sure students had the technology needed to learn remotely and, because of all the upheaval Covid-19 caused, they needed to pay attention to the social emotional needs of their students.
With technology becoming increasingly present in classrooms, it’s an exciting time for education.

On the morning Peterborough Matters speaks to Al Kingsley an announcement is made that Peterborough is to become a new Education Investment Area, which he broadly welcomes, albeit cautiously.
