Professor Rafaeli described the most significant impact of technology on education, including: the importance of information systems, lifelong learning, individual approach, and startups that will have a significant impact on learning styles.
This conference was the perfect opportunity to present academic and economic startups to decision-makers and influencers from around the world . Participants were able to network with the 12 invited startups: Young Speakers, SOVI, CheckMath, Kwan Academy, Hackages, EduGamitec, MathemaTIC, Kids Life Skills, MaGrid, SOS Math, Aqoona and meinUnterricht.
“We cannot predict the future, but we already know that it will be digital.”
A first very productive collaboration
The result of this first collaboration between SCRIPT and the House of Startups, has been an enriching and positive experience for both organisations.
“We cannot predict the future, but we already know that it will be digital. To ensure that our students do not become digitally illiterate, we must prepare our schools to adapt teaching methods and content,” said the Minister of National Education, Children and Youth, Claude Meisch.
“If there is one thing this conference has reminded us of, it is the extent to which our organizations and education systems are having to constantly adapt to new technologies. This first collaboration was also aimed at building bridges between EdTech startups emerging from these new trends,” concluded Karin Schintgen, CEO of the House of Startups.
