Inadvertently, the pandemic has accelerated the dawn of a new era of connected education, driving the digital agenda. UK Government funding to support remote learning to reduce education disruption has created an opportunity for educators to adopt the latest platforms like Microsoft Teams. With the right guidance, schools and colleges can use this funding to lay the foundations of digital learning that will optimise their resources and improve standards in teaching and learning. Approached in the right way, educators can create a platform for ongoing innovation that will future-proof education for the benefit of students and teachers for generations to come.
