Where next on our EdTech journey?

Two-thirds (67%) of UK teachers would use edtech at least once a week if their students had access to devices, and one-third (31%) would use it at least once a day – according to robust research by TeacherTapp.

Students’ wellbeing at school is increasingly conceptualised both at an individual level and as a collective school-wide commitment, says Kelly Hannaghan in Business & Industry magazine.

A technological approach could tap into the potential for improving the emotional health of young people. Tools such as Persona Life Skills take a personalised and inclusive approach to guiding every student on their skills development and wellbeing. And it is optimised for student use on smartphones, tablets or laptops.

The latest content we've added, completing the full set of 66 self-directed learning modules across three levels, includes: 

  • Challenge: Understand people to achieve better outcomes
  • Challenge: Respond to other people’s feelings
  • Challenge: Deal with difficult feedback
