Future of Education in a Post-Pandemic Environment

Ertem, in her keynote, will explore how this year presents a key opportunity for the EdTech ecosystem to help accelerate the adoption of technology that can help build a more resilient education system, by enabling anywhere learning and maximizing education continuity. Intel will also introduce the Intel® Skills for Innovation framework that focuses on the development of mindsets and skillsets to enable students and teachers to become future-ready.

“The disruptions of the past year have brought old and new education challenges into sharp focus. The rapid switch from in-person to remote learning has underscored the need for resilience and adaptability,” commented Ertem, Intel Corporation. “At the same time, the emergence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution has highlighted the need to equip students with new skillsets to better prepare them for the workforce of the future.”
