Today, 28th of February, WISE@Madrid Forum Imagining the Future of Education takes place to explore new narratives of change, and ways for rethinking tomorrow’s education to better prepare learners as effective, empowered and fulfilled individuals able to contribute to their communities. You can follow WISE@Madrid on streaming in this link starting at 12:00 Qatar time.
This Forum will deepen in the emerging tools and successful experiences for system level change, the role of higher education in preparing learners for future jobs, and new entrepreneurship and 21st century skills for smarter and happier societies.
WISE@ Madrid Forum brings together leaders in education, business and policy to discuss and debate the future of education. Among them is Ms. Nieves Segovia, the President of SEK Educational Group who will participate in the specialist panel about educational innovation, Redesigning Education Systems for the Future, a round table that will enable participants to exchange their views about the challenges posed by the transformation and evolution of educational systems in a constantly changing world. Experts will debate on the principles, means and innovations necessary to adapt and lead these systems.
Ms. Nieves Segovia has also prepared an article for the Summit, where she states that the time has come for the education system to rise up to the challenge of its own transformation, pointing out the necessity to question the status quo and the determination to act accordingly. The article is in line with the subject matter of the WISE initiative, which is created to further adapt education to the profound changes of the digital age, as now we are exploring further dazzling disruption of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and this sector seems largely disconnected from these dramatic developments.
Educators are aware that life-long learning has become crucial, that technology is replacing human roles, and big data, artificial intelligence and smart living are creating new workforce paradigms and require new skills. Imagining future jobs calls for a reimagined and renewed education today. That is why SEK combine the most up-to-date learning resources and the latest technology, to deliver state-of-the-art student-centered education.
Qatar Foundation established the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) in 2009 as response to the necessity of revitalizing education and providing a global platform for the development of new ideas and solution. WISE is an international, multi-sectoral platform for creative thinking, debate and purposeful action, aimed at promoting innovation and building the future of education through collaboration.
