For many educators, digital learning and all that it encompasses has been a pandemic-driven need, something that pre-pandemic was a luxury and not a necessity.
For Philippa Wraithmell, an author and educator in the Middle East, who specialises in digital education strategy, this has been something that has been a long time in the making.
Currently, some schools are developing and designing a vast array of structural needs that are detailed and intricate. A number of others have been ad-hoc grasping at individual elements, which have some benefit to the outcomes of the learning environment, but very few have truly embraced the detail that is needed to develop sustainable digital ecosystems.
Very few have truly embraced the detail that is needed to develop sustainable digital ecosystems
But where should educators and leaders start? This problem was identified by Philippa over the past six years as she embraced the support of educators globally, drawing on a range of experiences across many schools to support the development of the schools she worked in and with. No school has it 100% right and one reflection of her book is the awareness of there being no one size fits all.
The Digital Ecosystem takes the broad sections of education’s digital needs and breaks them down, supporting leaders to pinpoint their next steps.
Philippa’s book will be launching on 3 June 2022, at The Arbor School in Dubai
Philippa’s book will be launching on 3 June 2022, at The Arbor School in Dubai, based within the geodesic domes, a metaphor of education structures that runs through her book. Philippa and guest speakers will be sharing ideas on digital strategy, safeguarding, leadership and pedagogy. As educators we empower one another, which is exactly what The Digital Ecosystem is designed to do, support everyone to understand the deep need to effectively embed digital systems into our schools.
Join Philippa and others to discuss the bigger picture of education and how you can sustainably help your school to get there.
