Schools, colleges and universities have big aspirations for digital learning, but more than half struggle to keep up with technological change
Lack of resources and skills are slowing down the adoption of new technology to support more personalized and interactive teaching
Around eight in ten schools are still having to invest in basics such as network connectivity and school laptops

Fujitsu surveyed 602 respondents from a mix of state and privately funded primary schools, secondary schools, colleges/further education establishments, and universities across seven countries: Australia, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States. The research asked IT leaders in educational establishments about their digital ambitions, the challenges they are facing, the opportunities they see and their spending priorities. The survey, which took place in March/April 2017, involved a combination of telephone and face-to-face interviews and was conducted by an independent research institute on behalf of Fujitsu. The research paper will be available for digital download from Fujitsu from late June.
