EdTech Next Summit
We are looking forward to joining inspiring sessions about the future of education. Join us during the AI Panel at 2 p.m. on 12.09 as we discuss policy and regulations about AI in schools and how AI can bring positive change to the Education Sector.
Additionally, meet us at the Private + Public + Partnerships panel at 4 p.m. on 12.09. Together with the Council of Europe, we will be talking about their Guidelines to support equitable partnerships between education institutions and the private sector (https://www.coe.int/en/web/digital-citizenship-education/dce-privatesector). This will be very exciting for everyone who is interested in equitable partnerships in education as we explore the different types of equitable partnerships.
Further, we are excited about our EmpowerED workshop. Join us in the Masterclass at 11 a.m. on 13.09 to learn all about this amazing pan-European project as we look at ways to make the EdTech community excel.
