My Secret EdTech Diary

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

The potential of technology to improve things across the board in our schools is laid out in a new, practical book from edtech expert Al Kingsley.

My Secret EdTech Diary also charts the journey of edtech pre and post-Covid, offering some practical advice and insights.

As well as being chair of Hampton Academies Trust in Peterborough and the KWEST Trust in Norfolk, author Al Kingsley is also a long-standing member of the SecEd and Headteacher Update editorial board, and regularly contributes to the magazines.

Al is CEO of education software company NetSupport, too, and so has dual experience as both the head of company that develops education solutions and as an active participant in the strategic operation of education in his local area.

Al has spent more than 30 years working and volunteering in the education sector.

His book offers a commentary on educational technology as well as tips and suggestions for best practice, suggested questions schools should ask themselves and vendors as they select the right solutions for their context, and advice on co-producing solutions with vendors. It also includes practical checklists, recommendations, and contributions from trusted peers.

Al explained: “Many people think of edtech simply as the solutions that are found in the classroom, but expanding that view to paint the picture of what tech can do throughout a school, while putting its evolution into perspective, will hopefully get people engaged and thinking about the potential that technology has to improve things across the board for everyone working in a school or trust.”
