Our long reads this month include:

  • Marketing magic, page 47
    How schools and universities can use digital tools to help promote their institutions, and what has worked for others.
  • Network management, page 51
    From security safeguarding to the pros and cons of outsourced, managed ICT, how network managers can ensure best practice.
  • Roundtable, page 33
    We speak to four edtech experts about how to choose the right edtech for your institution.

We also have our monthly deep-dive, The Report. In this issue we take a look at the Open University’s new Future of Learning report, and look into how predictions for how education might look in 2070 have been decided. Check out what we found on page 41.

As always, we also cover the latest news, including schools, HE, and international issues, starting on page 8.

Our managing editor, Paddy Smith, also sat down with Jisc chief executive Paul Feldman, to discuss the what the tech not-for-profit is all about, and whether HE is “drowning” in data. See their conversation from page 58.

Our opinion articles this month cover everything from how the internet has affected literacy (page 25), to the issue of e-waste, and how education institutions can invest in sustainable technology (page 26).

Sir Anthony Seldon, vice-chancellor of the University of Buckingham, has the Last Word, where he purports that “AI is a bigger issue than global warming.” Find out why on page 62.
