The global COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 has exposed the inadequacies of education systems around the world. This brought to the fore once again the use of ICT, particularly digital technologies, as education systems race to shift to remote or online learning due to school closures. Hence, teachers were largely ‘forced into it’. This paper provides an overview of the challenges that school teachers could have faced in their dramatic change in teaching practices during the pandemic. The paper will also offer recommendations and considerations for the integration of digital technologies in post-pandemic learning environments.
