Digital transformation was, until 12 months ago, a buzzword that IT consultancies bandied about in a bid to sell high value projects and drag sectors kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. But all this has changed. According to McKinsey in the pandemic, “consumers have moved dramatically toward online channels, and companies and industries have responded in turn”. Education is no different to business. In an article by Raconteur, “Digital transformation in education has shifted from important to essential in the past few months”. Without digital devices and content education is, today, very difficult to deliver, and one-child to one-device has got to be a goal for all countries. This investment is necessary to enable remote classes, but does need to be combined with minimum connectivity. Throwing money at a problem does not bring the best solution: investing in hardware is one thing but software that safeguards children from access to inappropriate content, and can give teachers an easy to use tool to manage hybrid lessons is key. Balancing the management of a device in class hours by the school and by the parents outside of class time is where we should be moving toward. Digital Parental Interaction is the new silver lining for education. Just ask us.
