COVID-19 has been one of the biggest catalysts for change within education. For many schools and institutions, the pandemic has driven a need to rapidly consider increased use of new technology.
A recent survey by Tes Global found that the lockdown has increased teacher's intent in using technology, with 79% reporting they were more likely to use technology in their teaching practice.

Join us as we discuss the following questions:
- What are the most effective approaches to virtual learning?
- How can educational institutions adapt quickly enough?
- What tools and capabilities are needed to quickly enable this change?
