Event Description

During the event, the panelists and audience will explore the following questions:
  • Today, we are living in an ever more connected and ever-changing world. Knowledge upgrades itself very quickly amid rapid technology development and social progress, and has gone far beyond what a textbook could offer. So here is an imminent question for us to answer: what kind of education should we provide to today’s young individuals to prepare them to face and create the world of tomorrow as young adults?
  • As adults today, how should we lead the path of education innovation?
  • What are the frontiers of thought leadership and innovative practice in education worldwide?
  • How do we understand the roles of “TEACHER” today, and what are the new roles compared with the past?
  • How could we make the best use of Internet technology to push forward education equality, and get closer to the very essence of education?
