Good set of reflections from a recent conference identifying some recent trends. Quoted:
- The focus on professional development is stronger than ever.
- School systems are looking to share their work.
- The need to engage a wide range of stakeholders in the digital transition.
- School districts of all sizes are finding the funds to make the shift from hardcover textbooks to digital curricula.
As I said to someone last week in Riyadh, the future is slow. We think things should change instantly, but they never do. It takes a long time. You have to look for things like this, indicators of steady progress, rather than sudden change.
