Digital education for a strong recovery: A forward look

Digitalisation is transforming societies, providing new opportunities to improve education in the classroom, enhance the management of education systems, but also to consider innovative models of delivery. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated and cast a spotlight on the importance of digitalisation. Countries’ current digital learning infrastructure has to be reconsidered, including teachers’ ability to use it efficiently.

The conference will highlight advances in educational technology based on artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and blockchain. It will also start a dialogue between policy makers, education stakeholders, the global education industry and experts in the field, with a view to sharing knowledge and information, but also to start thinking of related policy issues, international opportunities for collaboration, and strategies about embracing and driving the digital transformation in education.
