The face of teaching has changed rapidly in the last few years. Teaching aids and resources that were only gradually becoming available in some educational institutions before the Covid-19 pandemic, suddenly came to the forefront across the sector. Out of necessity, new ways of enabling students to learn and study rapidly appeared. It is now recognized that digital tools really can activate learning, leading to more fully engaged learners. Another considerable benefit is that online assessments and data tell you how students are doing, as they go, so you can decide what to teach (or reteach) and how best to teach it.
