The educational sector is set for a major and likely disruptive makeover. A decade ago the possibility of unlimited and unfettered access to education appeared far-fetched. Driven by the forces of globalization, advances in information and communication technologies, and the next generation of tech-savvy learners, education is fast evolving.

The enticing promise of digitization in transforming the educational sector is now uncontested by both educationists and policymakers. Despite occasional successes, the impact of digital technologies in transforming education have been constrained due to a variety of reasons.

India is a good case in point. Despite the emphasis on a digital transformation of the economy, the rural-urban divide is huge, with the internet penetration in urban and rural areas pegged at 65% and 20% respectively leaving over 50% of India’s population unserved or underserved with regards to educational services. The situation in much of South Asia is similar with 65% of the population with limited or no access to the internet.

The conference will discuss factors that account for these gaps in technology, policy and practice, and how advances in technology can be leveraged to make high-quality education affordable, accessible and empowering.
