European High Level Conference “Education in the Digital Era”, Brussels, 11th of December 2014

In a constantly changing and increasingly digitally connected world, education needs to be “fit for the digital era”. Education institutions must quickly adapt to remain relevant and to actively support innovation and competiveness in a society where technology pervades all walks of life.

The conference has presented a unique chance to discuss the opportunities and challenges of adapting contemporary education systems to the increasing use of ICT in our digital society. It involved a wide range of high-level stakeholders and experts in the field of digital communication and learning.

Its key main themes were focused on:

  • Increasing the quality and relevance of learning
  • Increasing the impact of educators
  • Addressing inequalities through better access and lower cost
