AGENDA

09:30
EDU CHALLENGES

Digital transformation is sweeping over every sector and aspect of the economy, state and society. The way we teach and learn is no exception. Are CEE’s education systems ready to prepare the region's youth and active workforce to address the needs of the digital job market? How far along are we in terms of adopting innovative educational tools in our schools and universities? Let’s identify the vital challenges ahead of modern teaching and learning in CEE.

09:40
SPEECHES OF SPECIAL GUESTS

True leaders of shaping education and its digitisation from CEE share their insight and set the table for further discussion.

10:00
OPENING PANEL DISCUSSION
Roadmap for digitisation of the Central Eastern European Countries

Central Eastern European countries show a varying level digitisation. Boosting the transformation remains a priority for most of them, as the majority of CEE states find themselves below the European average of the Digital Economy and Society Index. Where does transformation of education land on the CEE’s roadmap for digitisation? Do we provide enough attention and resources to this area? What’s the role of the public and private sector in bringing forth education of the future?

The opening discussion panel featuring top education officials, researchers and leaders of the industry providing tools for modern education will clash their views on the way we transform the way we teach and learn.

EDU CHALLENGE 1: TECHNOLOGY

Novel, digital technology offers tools and means to completely reshape the way we share knowledge and skills. Technological progress takes place at rates unheard of before. How do we assess the potential and usefulness of available technologies to make right choices and make the most of available tools? Is an interactive board really better than a blackboard and some chalk?

Let us discuss the issues of identifying the right tech for education, finding resources for implementing modern teaching tools and debate on their advantages over legacy educational methods.

12:30
EDU CHALLENGE 2: CYBERTHREATS

Digital transformation redefines the work we work, teach, learn and socialise. However, it does also change the way crime is done. Recent years and past months in particular have shown an unprecedented increase in the number of cyberattacks and incidents. As education keeps on implementing and adopting more digital tools, it is bound to become more vulnerable to cyberthreats.

What is the risk education faces in terms of cybersecurity? How do we protect data gathered by schools, universities and all institutions involved in the educational process? Let’s look into the modern threats and means for assuring protection and resilience to digital education.

13:30
Lunch break

EDU CHALLENGE 3: PROFESSIONS OF THE FUTURE

Some say the advent of automation and AI is bound to put an end to a significant number of jobs and lead to a cull of job opportunities throughout the economy. Others point to the fact that we are witnessing an advent of completely novel jobs, industries and market niches, filled with job opportunities of the future. One thing is certain: we must prepare both our youth and the adults for the upcoming and ongoing changes to the labour market.

What are the digital competences necessary to navigate the market of tomorrow? Do CEE citizens possess them or are looking to gain these skills? Are we looking at a threat or an opportunity? How do we reach those already out of the educational process? Let’s discuss the professions of the future.

15:00
EDU CHALLENGE 4: FUNDS

Digital revolution cannot happen without sufficient funding. How to provide financial resources for transformation of our educational system? Do schools and universities consider digitalisation to be a priority investment or a source of unpleasant necessary expenses?

What are the available sources of funding the urgent transformation? Is access to these resources fair and common? How to convince those struggling with budgets to invest in digital tools? Let’s discuss the funds for digital education of the future.
