UBP is delighted to introduce our latest new book to be published this summer - Cracking Social Mobility: How AI and Other Innovations Can Help to Level the Playing Field by Tom Moule.
About Cracking Social Mobility
In the UK and most countries today, a person’s life chances are unfairly influenced by their socio-economic circumstances at birth.
This has led to societal divides that have become wider and more pronounced as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. There is now heightened awareness that the current state of affairs is unacceptable. Innovative approaches are urgently needed in order to combat social immobility.
Drawing upon the latest research, Cracking Social Mobility explores the factors that contribute to social immobility, and puts forward focused, innovative solutions. The book impresses upon readers that social mobility is a societal goal worth striving towards, and that societies can take strides in the right direction by harnessing the power of digital innovation. From democratizing the private tuition sector and enhancing the effectiveness of teaching and learning, to supporting inclusive recruitment practices, technologies can help to level the playing field. A heartfelt call to action, this book explores how this can be achieved.
The title is available from 3 August 2021 but is available to pre-order here.
