Previously, I was the CEO of a national charity that challenged inequalities in health by helping young people understand how to look after their health and wellbeing, in particular, the importance of a well-balanced, healthy diet, and regular exercise.
My work with youngsters, relied heavily on the latest technology and so enriched their experience that they learned quicker and helped with retention of their new-found knowledge to use now and for the rest of their lives. Having the right equipment and connectivity was vital. Many more children and their families will now live healthier, happier, longer lives because they have the tools they need to make the right choices.
I am backing Wolves Tech Aid because I believe it is the answer to being able to learn online and at home. All students will have the same educational opportunities to achieve their ambitions and expectations. You never know, your donation could help a future plumber, accountant, nurse or Wolverhampton’s next stand-up comedian.
What is certain is that the future is in technology and no child should be left behind because they do not have the right equipment or connection to the internet.
