The new everyday in education
Even before the pandemic struck, schools, colleges and universities were starting to embrace technology in education.
But overnight the enforced shift to home-learning meant everyone involved in education had to radically rethink the way lessons were delivered.
From ensuring equality of access to digital learning tools to embracing interactive white-board technology or moving parents evenings onto Teams, many of the changes introduced over the past year look set to be permanent fixtures.
So how can you make blended learning a long-term success?
How embracing digital can improve education and boost the economy
We recently commissioned the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) to look at the potential benefits to the UK Economy of the continued investment in digital transformation projects, similar to what we’ve seen over the last year.
Across the UK, Cebr estimates that continued investment in digital change projects could increase UK GDP by £232bn, or 6.9%, by 2040.
We’ve created this education-focused report to explore how educators across the UK have already been investing and what the impact has been so far.
- The five key questions that Haringey Education Partnership identified that schools should answer to ensure future digital success, prompted by teacher-led innovation
- How the National Grid for Learning’s programme to introduce faster broadband to UK schools accelerated during the pandemic to increase safety and security for pupils nationwide and improve online learning
- The three key apps that Global Academy have rolled out to support all of their students
- When VR in the classroom can replicate - and even improve upon - the traditional ‘school visit’ experience

The Cebr Methodology
The methodology is centered on producing a cumulative economics delta between a baseline scenario, in which there is no accelerated adoption of digital transformation initiatives, and a scenario in which there is.
The research considered a number of modelling inputs to estimate the productivity impacts of various forms of technology to derive the ‘Post Covid-19 Digital Transformation’ technology uplift coefficient.
This coefficient is then scaled to reflect the proportion of the workforce to whom it applies.
The model also estimates the rate of technological adoption across different sectors and a rate of re-investment.
All of the estimates are rooted in a detailed literature review.
