Teach Middle East

I am a huge EdTech fan. I love to talk about EdTech, I love to explore the possibilities of EdTech in helping to make the lives of teachers and students easier. On this episode of the Teach Middle East podcast, I speak with Al Kingsley. Al is well known in the EdTech space and in the education circles globally. He is the Managing Director of NetSupport, and he is also the chair of two multi-academy trusts.

 We talk about whether Covid-19 pandemic is a crisis or an opportunity for the education sector. We delve into what schools should and should not be doing when planning their digital strategies, we got our crystal balls out and attempted to predict the future of EdTech. Al also reveals the one piece of tech that he finds indispensable.

Bio- Al is Group Managing Director of NetSupport, an international software company developing EdTech for classroom instruction, e-Safety and more. With a passion for education, Al has co-authored a ‘Digital Strategy Guide for Schools’, was named a 2020 EdTech-50 winner and supports educators with mentoring, resources and speaking at events.
