Lessons from lockdown

Liam Isaac, Head of Digital Learning Technology, Dover Campus 

In March, Singapore went into lockdown, bringing with it an abrupt shift to our lives as we all switched to ‘remote’ models—learning, working, gathering and supporting. Whilst SARS in 2003 meant that the notion was not completely unprecedented, the extent of the impact of the current pandemic will no doubt be viewed as a pivotal moment for existing trends towards technology-led changes in so many areas of our lives. Historians documenting the factors influencing changes to the industrial educational model of the 20th century will no doubt point to the necessity of adapting to the pandemic as an accelerator in a long-overdue digital transformation of a sector that had been largely unchanged by the rising tide of technology.
