These challenges further reinforce the need for a holistic approach between technology and education. The ability for teachers to be comfortable and confident with the technology requires more than showing them how to turn it on.
We need to understand that technology is a means - not an end. Technology cannot replace great teaching, but it can make great teachers even better. To unlock the potential for all students to learn, close the skills gap and empower them to achieve more - educators need to have the ability to create immersive and inclusive learning experiences that inspire lifelong learning.
The need for 21st century skills in the modern workplace drives the demand for a highly equipped teaching force with ability to personalize education to students - while using mobile and cloud platforms to provide access to resources wherever and whenever.
