High-Level Dialogue on the Transforming Education Summit and the 2023 GEM Report on technology and education

In person event in Geneva with remote participation, 15:30-17:00

UNESCO is organizing a high level dialogue on the Transforming Education Summit and the 2023 GEM Report on technology and education during the 2022 WSIS Forum. The outcomes of the discussion will feed into the fourth thematic action line on digital learning and transformation for the Transforming Education Summit, and inform the ongoing research being carried out for the 2023 GEM Report on technology and education.

This consultation will seek to consolidate public engagement and interest in ways to repair past injustices and orient the digital transformation around inclusion and equity. Enabling meaningful engagement and feedback from multiple stakeholders will help design the shape of a new path for education, which better serves people and helps our societies to live peacefully with one another and with our planet. Information exchange and sharing of best practices will drive change for good; identifying evidence-based examples of education technology policies and financing based on national experiences will be critical input to the 2023 GEM Report, which will be a strong policy-making tool for the future. 

The high-level dialogue is being hosted by UNESCO during the World Summit on the Information Society Forum 2022, the world’s largest annual gathering of the ICT for development community.

The 90-minute high-level dialogue will be divided in two sessions: a brief presentation of the Transforming Education Summit and thematic action line 4 on digital learning and transformation followed by a consultation on the 2023 GEM Report on technology and education.

The consultation will feature a presentation of the 2023 GEM Report concept note followed by a discussion with experts and stakeholders working on ICT for development. The discussions will focus on issues related to the distribution of access to technology in education within and between countries and policies and programmes that promote access to technology and equity.
