Why digital education 2020?
With this event, we wanted to support employees in preschool institutions, schools, universities and other organizations dealing with education, to encourage creativity and innovation, to raise the quality of educational work and modernize the learning process and to make the best use of new technologies in education.
The world of technology is advancing very fast. The world of education is progressing somewhat more slowly. We are witnessing great technological, educational, and social changes spurred by the fourth industrial revolution. The conference ”Digital Education 2020” aimed to bring together a large community of educators who have shown that they can successfully overcome the challenges of education in the digital age.
- Providing a platform for the exchange of knowledge of employees in education
- Introduction to innovative practice, teaching methods and application of ICT tools in education
- Identify possible key policy and practice recommendations in this area.
- Ensuring the participation of all actors in education in the digital age
