To catch a glimpse of the future, all one needs is to keenly observe how newer methodologies and innovations are being used to deliver education.
Today, the growing role of innovation and technology in education sector is too overwhelming for members of any progressive society to ignore it. It is not only serving as a useful tool to help our schools, colleges and universities deliver the information and knowledge effectively.
It is in this light that Elets Technomedia Pvt Ltd is going to organise the World Education Summit (WES) with the theme – “Reimagining Learning for Next Generation”. The summit will showcase the latest innovations, initiatives and best practices followed across the globe along with the education prospects for the next generation.
Globally renowned education regulatory body of United Arab Emirates (UAE) – Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) will facilitate the participants at the summit to be familiar with the best educational practices across the globe. The grand conclave will witness the participation of national education regulatory bodies such as All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), University Grants Commission (UGC), National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and many more. Rajasthan has joined us as the principal state partner, Jharkhand as state partner along with state education departments of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Haryana and Telangana.
Over 100 delegates from 33 countries including Afghanistan, Bhutan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Sudan, Srilanka, Jordan, UAE, UK, Bahrain, Singapore, Tajikistan, Namibia, Zambia, Guinea, Krygyzstan, Cambodia, Mongolia, Tunisia, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Tanzania, Comoros, Nigeria, Rwanda, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Cambodia, Lao PDR, Vietnam and Myanmar will participate in the global conference.
The 10th edition of World Education Summit (WES) is carrying forward the legacy of its previous editions where national and international experts, leaders, school or college owners, principals, vice chancellors gathered to deliberate upon the role of education towards building knowledge-based society. Our latest cover story — WES Legacy: Bringing the Brightest Minds Together — is an attempt to explain and revisit the World Education Summit over the years and celebrate its 10th edition in Delhi’s Le Meridien hotel from Aug 11-12, 2017.
