Wellbeing in education has become an increasingly hot topic across the globe. With that in mind, NetSupport’s Managing Director and Chair of a Multi-Academy Trust, Al Kingsley, recently wrote an article for Teach Middle East Magazine discussing ‘supporting student and teacher wellbeing with technology’.
In the UAE, according to recent figures revealed by the Ministry of Education, ‘a quarter of all school pupils are being bullied’. In addition, the [email protected] Wellbeing Survey shared results that showed that ‘40% of the participants were just getting by’.
Supporting both students and teachers in schools has never been more important and, with the use of technology, it’s never been easier. Not only does technology provide students with ‘new ways to connect, communicate and learn’, but it can also make a difference for teachers by ‘saving time and boosting learning outcomes’.
