GEF Challenge: The future of education on the planet

The Global Education Forum, which promotes the transformation of higher education and the university system and which will offer its event and final conclusions on October 13, 14 and 15, has started with a preliminary global debate made up of four micro-events that include round tables , talks and interviews, as well as a Hackathon and a Global Challenge for students.

In this way, it aims to involve the entire educational community to solve the challenges facing the sector, starting with its own present and future users.

More than 200 students from Jagran Lakec, T and University, American University of Afghanistan and Camilo José Cela University, and SEK-Ciudalcampo schools have participated in this global challenge, aimed at the five continents; SEK-El Castillo, SEK-Santa Isabel, SEK-Alboran, SEK-Qatar, SEK-Catalunya, SEK-Atlántico and SEK-Les Alpes.

The objective of these students has been to determine how digitization can transform current educational models, giving rise to the digital education of the future.

The challenge began on September 10 when online presentation and kick-off meetings were held between the representatives and teachers of the participating universities and institutions. Subsequently, on September 13, the students made their own resolution to the challenge to create the digital university of the future and, finally, on September 29, the last day of the challenge, the participants sent their materials to the GEF team. Between October 13 and 15, the solutions will be discovered at the final GEF event.

This experience will allow university students to identify new possibilities, trends and solutions for the educational model while promoting teamwork, collaboration and creative skills.
