  • In education, three key technology-related shifts are underway that shows this to be an idea whose time has finally come. The first involves shifting computers from school tech labs to classrooms and from classrooms to pupils’ backpacks. The second replaces books and print-based analogues with online curricula and digital content. The third removes one-size-fits all, teacher-at-front-of-the room instructional approaches in favour of personalised lessons, assessments, and instructional modalities.&amp;quot; Global education strategist Dr Mark Westo
