Covid-19 has brought the potential of digital technology to effectively deliver remote learning to the fore, but exploiting its use is not new and discussions involving school leaders and key partner agencies were underway in January of last year before the pandemic hit.
These discussions focussed on how a city-wide approach could be developed which supported learning both in school and at home and which could ultimately drive improved outcomes in terms of attainment and progress as well as help cut teacher workload, support inclusion and drive efficiencies. This ambition was given a high priority within the Portsmouth Education Strategy 2020 – 2023 and forms Priority 2 of the strategy: implement a digital learning strategy for the city that supports learning both at school and at home.
In order to make Portsmouth a digital city, we must work at a local level to develop an action plan around three essential and connected objectives:
- Building capacity
- Evidencing impact
- Addressing digital poverty
