Flick through our magazine for free online for the latest on VR, the Cloud and preparing Gen Z for the automation of the workplace

Welcome to the upgrade issue!

The new edition of Education Technology is out now and features the current debate about automation and AI in education.  Should we welcome the advent of AI?  What implications might it bring for teaching?  What's the future for teaching and automation?  Read our features for free in our online magazine.

This issue we also cover what's new in the Cloud, VLEs and the debate around VR and AR in education.  We look at innovative use of technology such as Aruba Beacons in education at Bryanston School.

We've had the Industrial Strategy, the Digital Strategy and the Spring Budget.  Ty Goddard, from EdTechUK and the Education Foundation gives a response in the April/May issue to these policy and budget announcements which will have huge implications for edtech.

On the subject of tech change and upgrades, our Roundtable looks at how teachers can keep up, barriers, top tips for those short of time and how edtech can be integrated with CPD.

Preparing children for the future has been the job of educators for generations, but with the pace of tech change increasing what might the future of work be?  Will children need to be taught differently, with more ability to question and improve their creativity?  How might Philosophy help improve problem solving, asks Dr Charlotte Blease, who has the Last Word.  Douglas Coupland, Canadian novelist has always been ahead of his time, ET hears what he has to say about the future of work.
