Nearly 1.3 Billion K-12 students worldwide are experiencing the digital transformation of primary and secondary education. Accelerated by the sudden shift to remote learning through COVID, educators, children and their parents have embraced technology like never before.
Almost two years of remote learning in most parts of the world has thrown huge challenges to students, parents, teachers and whole education systems. Governments are re-thinking what it means to provide ‘access’ to education, working with infrastructure providers to strengthen internet connectivity, funding new digital initiatives for educational content and sourcing new forms of digital learning resources, instructional materials and fast-feedback assessment. Once considered ‘nice to have’, digital educational content and instructional materials are rapidly becoming a foundation for learning in K12 settings and working their way deep into federal, state and district budgets around the world.
