Annual Conference 2017
Digitalisation is ever growing and will inevitably affect all sectors. Yet we still struggle to understand the extent of it and few are fully prepared for it: there is a change in the nature of the race between man and the machine, and the machine is running faster. The challenge of education in a digital world commands us to open education as widely as possible to include all, through flexible pathways and innovative thinking in order to enable all to adapt to yet unknown developments. How can lifelong learning answer these challenges in order to insure universal access to digital education?
The Conference will take place at the crossroads between the Maltese and Estonian Presidencies of the Council of the EU. Because Malta’s main axis of reflection during its Presidency will be Inclusive education and Estonia will focus on Digital Education, the LLLPlatform hopes that the topic chosen will serve each one’s purposes, smoothly linking them together. What’s more, this topic also reflects the European Union Agenda, namely the launch of the Digital Skills for Jobs Coalition under the New Skills Agenda for Europe adopted in 2016.
The Conference will invite participants to take part in forwarding answers to the burning challenge that is the transformation of education in a digital world, thanks to a solid knowledge-network composed of members, educators, learners, civil society organisations, national and EU representatives and experts.
