"Technology tailored to the needs of students and educators can help. We estimate that technology can help teachers reallocate 20 to 30 percent of their time so they can focus more on student-centric activities such as building deeper one-on-one relationships, refining individual lesson plans, or providing real-time and personalized feedback to students."The class of 2030 and life-ready learning.

"The key reasons for moving to digital exams are that digital exams: prepare young people for the digital world; are more inclusive; are more environmentally sustainable; and develop digital skills while also being what young people want."AQA. "Making it Click: The case for digital examinations in England" Pg. 12

"Our ambition is that students will sit a large-entry subject – that means, in our case, hundreds of thousands of simultaneous exams – digitally by 2030."Colin Hughes, AQA's Chief Executive Officer. 17 October 2023

CASE FOR CHANGE - Society

Defining digital literacy Digital literacy is the ability to use technology to find, evaluate, create, and communicate information. It encompasses a range of skills, including basic computer use, internet navigation, social media proficiency, and data analysis. Digital literacy also involves understanding how to use digital devices and software, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. Digital literacy is not just about using technology; it is also about understanding its impact on society, culture, and economics. It involves critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as the ability to adapt to new technologies and digital environments. Digital literacy is a lifelong learning process that requires continuous education and training.

On Digital Literacy and Information Fluency: "As technology continues to permeate every aspect of our lives, digital literacy and information fluency have become essential competencies. Embracing 21st-century learning design enables students to harness the power of technology responsibly, critically evaluate information, and leverage digital tools to create, communicate, and collaborate effectively."

On Personalized Learning and Student Agency: "One size does not fit all in education. 21st-century learning design recognizes the diverse needs, interests, and abilities of every student and empowers them to take ownership of their learning journey. By fostering personalized learning experiences and cultivating student agency, we foster a culture of lifelong learning and growth."

To catalyse change in the use of technology across the English education system, we are launching a series of EdTech challenges. They are designed to support a partnership between EdTech industry and the education sector to ensure product development and testing is focused on the needs of the education system. The challenges are to industry and the education sector (including academia) to prove what is possible and to inform the future use of EdTech across our education system.

Challenge 1: “Improve parental engagement and communication, whilst cutting related teacher workload by up to five hours per term.”

Challenge 2: “Show how technology can facilitate part-time and flexible working patterns in schools and colleges, including through the use of time-tabling tools.”

Challenge 3: “Cut teacher time spent preparing, marking and analysing in-class assessments and homework by two hours per week or more.”

Challenge 4: “Show that technology can reduce teacher time spent on essay marking for mock GCSE exams by at least 20%.”

On Future-Ready Skills for Employment: "In today's knowledge-based economy, the demand for skilled workers who can adapt, innovate, and thrive in dynamic work environments continues to grow. By embracing 21st-century learning design, we prepare our students not only for academic success but also for fulfilling careers and meaningful contributions to society."

On Global Citizenship and Collaboration:"By integrating 21st-century learning design into our classrooms, we empower students to become global citizens who can collaborate effectively across cultures and borders. This prepares them to tackle complex challenges and contribute meaningfully to our interconnected world."

Social media presents various dangers for children, including:Cyberbullying: Children may experience harassment, bullying, or online abuse from peers or strangers on social media platforms, leading to psychological distress, anxiety, and depression. Exposure to Inappropriate Content: Children may encounter inappropriate or harmful content, including violence, explicit imagery, hate speech, and misinformation, which can negatively impact their emotional well-being and worldview. Privacy Risks: Children may unwittingly share personal information, photos, or location data online, exposing them to privacy breaches, identity theft, and online predators. Addiction and Screen Time: Excessive use of social media can contribute to addiction-like behaviors, sleep disturbances, reduced physical activity, and impaired social skills among children, affecting their overall health and development. Comparison and Self-Esteem Issues: Constant exposure to curated, idealised portrayals of life on social media can foster feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and unrealistic body image standards among children, leading to negative self-comparisons and mental health issues.

On Adaptability and Innovation: "In today's rapidly evolving world, our students must be prepared to adapt and innovate. Embracing 21st-century learning design allows us to cultivate the skills and mindset necessary for success in an ever-changing landscape."

Technology has the potential to radically impact the learning experience for all and improve student outcomes

On Critical Thinking and Problem Solving: "In an era defined by information abundance and complexity, it is imperative that our students develop strong critical thinking and problem-solving skills. 21st-century learning design encourages inquiry, analysis, and creative problem-solving, equipping students with the tools they need to navigate and shape the future."

To make the most positive use of social media for children, it's essential to implement the following strategies: Parental Guidance and Supervision: Parents should actively monitor their children's online activities, establish clear rules and boundaries regarding screen time and social media usage, and engage in open, ongoing conversations about digital citizenship, online safety, and responsible behavior. Digital Literacy and Critical Thinking Skills: Educators and parents should empower children with digital literacy skills, including the ability to critically evaluate online content, identify misinformation and scams, protect personal information, and navigate social media platforms responsibly. Promote Positive Online Communities: Encourage children to cultivate positive, supportive online relationships and participate in constructive, educational communities aligned with their interests and values. Emphasise kindness, empathy, and respect for diverse perspectives in digital interactions. Balance Screen Time with Offline Activities: Encourage children to engage in a balanced lifestyle that includes offline activities, hobbies, physical exercise, and face-to-face interactions with family and friends, reducing the risk of excessive screen time and social media dependency. Model Healthy Digital Behaviors: Parents and caregivers should serve as positive role models by demonstrating healthy digital behaviors, setting reasonable limits on their own screen time, and prioritising meaningful offline interactions and family time. Create Safe and Supportive Online Spaces: Social media platforms, schools, and community organisations should implement robust safety measures, privacy settings, reporting mechanisms, and support services to protect children from online risks, promote positive digital experiences, and respond effectively to cyberbullying, harassment, and other forms of online harm.
