Panel I—Digitalisation, Modernisation, Reform—Or All of the Above? The Future of Education in the 21st Century

Among the many aspects of life where change is being driven by the COVID-19 pandemic is education. School systems all over the world were caught unprepared for the transition to large-scale digital classes, and the situation inspired -- and forced -- all involved parties to consider changes that would remain in place in a post-COVID world. The panel takes a look at some of these proposals as it considers what the various levels of education might look like in the future.
