COVID-19 has caused an unprecedented disruption in education worldwide, resulting in much greater reliance on technology; however, educators need to be aware of technologies' strengths and limitations.



  • Teachers are ingenious at finding ways to support students from a distance.
  • Access to resources and technology differs widely. 
  • Distance learning was more immersive with new ways to support it with a broader range of resources and strategies that should help to enable student success and wellbeing. 
  • There is no substitute for person to person human connection.
  • As people and organisations rely on technology, innovations will emerge, including new machine learning applications and tools for working in the cloud.
  • We are all affected by education changes, whether through professional development, developing courses for others or supporting homeschooling. 
  • Understanding technologies limitations, as well as its potential, should help in achieving successful learning outcomes.
