Getting Digital Learning Transformation right!
“When it comes to getting Digital Learning Transformation right, I am a really strong advocate of detailed analysis, short and longterm planning and transparent communication. Moreover, I believe that it is critical to harness the confidence and goodwill of teachers and trainers. When we get this wrong, we run the risk of losing the support of crucial people. When we get it right, we are enabling educators to be a pivotal part of these very interesting times. When it comes to education, the focus must be on the learner and on creating engaging learning whether that is with or without technology”. (Eamon Kelly)
