Contribution of Technology to Achieving Quality Learning for All

Tuesday, May 24, 2022

Catalyzed by school closures due to the pandemic, technology is becoming an integral component of education. However, significant gaps exist between different stakeholders, policymakers, and practitioners with regards to capability and knowledge on how technology may bring positive change, help to reduce teacher workload, provide differential teaching, and support an efficient school management and teacher professional development. These emerging trends, opportunities, and challenges will affect education systems in the future. As countries develop post-pandemic recovery strategies, integration of technology in education system that is accessible to all types of population will become increasingly important. Realizing the potential of technology in education is a collaborative endeavor that should be coordinated at the global level. Policymakers, educators, the private sector, and communities from developing and developed countries must all be involved. Continuous innovation, learning, and sharing of experiences in the design and integration of technology in education system will be essential in shaping the future of education in the years to come.
