Why digital transformation in education matters

When the Final report of the Commission on Assessment without Levels was released, it recommended that schools should build an assessment framework to check what pupils have learned and whether they are meeting expectations, and to report to parents and other stakeholders.A significant part of this system is collecting assessment data, however, the report acknowledged that many teachers found data entry and management in their school burdensome. This is where the right technology solution can make a difference. Technology can play an important role in capturing the detail of students’ work, which helps teachers and parents monitor how a child is progressing. By documenting handwriting and creative work, for example, comparisons can be made at intervals against content already stored digitally, leading to a better understanding of who is improving and who requires more attention.In addition, when schoolwork is available digitally it can be more easily shared. Some schools already capture all student content each day and share it directly with parents, instead of requiring children to take home physical documents.
