Engagement and education in our next normal


This school year has started like no other in history.

Parent engagement, social distancing, parents’ evening, attendance and attainment… the list goes on.

Listen to our panel discussion on educational engagement in the next normal. We discuss how engagement with parents, carers, students, and the wider community has changed, most likely forever, as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Using education software and technology to engage previously hard-to-reach parents, parents evening, work-life balance and ensure all children still achieve their potential in the most challenging circumstances are all covered – with each panellist providing personal insight and real-life experiences for their Trust or school. All of which, helps us understand the key role educational technology has in supporting Educators to continue shaping the lives of the future generation.
