4.1 Challenge and opportunity
The pandemic, in common with other world crisis, forced us to think about digital education in ways that ‘business as usual’, did not. Much research carried out during this time, reports not only to the challenges of digital learning, but also the considerable wellspring of teacher, leader and support staff creativity during this time (Co-operation and Development, 2019; Sailer et al., 2021; OECD, 2021) .
Research on digital leadership has shown how important it is that leaders are convinced of the case for digital learning, in order to articulate a clear vision of their schools’ digital future. (Domeny, 2017; Sailer et al., 2021)
