 Education is among those areas, where transformations occur most rapidly in an ever-changing and ever-developing world. The improvement of educational capabilities, coupled with scientific developments, called for digitalization and an innovative approach in education. The COVID-19 pandemic, in particular, gave rise to a fresh perspective on education around the globe. This session will evaluate new approaches to the future of education and facilitate a debate on that issue within the framework of digital literacy and real-life experiences for students as well as the application of knowledge, the creation of products and projects, and changes in examination and certification processes.


Discussion Themes

  • How will technology shape the education of the future? How will students respond to that transformation?

  • What is the role of artificial intelligence in providing education in line with the aptitude of students with the help of ‘adaptive learning’ today?

  • How was education in the past, and how will it be in the future? What do we need to catch up with the future?

  • What do we need to take into consideration in educational activities in order to ensure the success of holistic education?

  • What kind of guidance is needed for students to learn how to learn?

  • In light of the ‘extra-school education’ and ‘deschooling society’ debates, what will the traditional education system look like in the future?
