Preparing the next generation, for the skills of tomorrow

None can deny the fact that a country’s future rests on the shoulders of its children, quite specifically on how they are taught and engaged to think and act. If the 21st century is truly the age of cataclysmic change and creativity, then nothing less than a paradigm shift in the education system will do. Yes, technology will continue to play a great role in disrupting legacy education models, but emphasis on human beings’ capacity to create and innovate in the face of rapid change and complexity will not rest. It will surely pave the way for the resurgence and burnishing of human creativity and the skills that express it, namely questioning and curiosity, awareness, discovery, and networking.  

At the Education Innovation Conference, by engaging industry leaders, key decision makers, influencers and experts from educational institutions, technology, policy, investment and NGOs under one roof, it actively aims to learn, share, collaborate and build the education space and show India’s prowess to the world in the field of education.

Can innovative technology have a radical impact on education? Does edtech have the potential to tackle the problems that have proven too difficult for successive generations to solve? How can India build world-class institutions? How is the education system in India transforming to deliver better learning outcomes for our children?  The one place where you would find an answer to every question is the annual Education Innovation Conference. Don’t miss it!
