The Future of Learning -panel discussion brought a lot of professionals within #education and #learning together under one roof to exchange thoughts and ideas 💡

Some of the key #takeaways were:

💭 #Technology is developing fast, education and schools more slowly

💭 #Teachers are adaptive and interested in trying out new solutions, strengthening the competences of the educators is vital

💭 A more efficient public-private #partnership is needed, along with centers for innovators, educators, and other stakeholders to meet and develop #impactful solutions

And a big applause to all attendees as well, the discussions were thought-provoking, and it’s nice to see how different areas of expertise are represented in our deepening #ecosystem 🤝🌍
