 Unlock Big Change – Education: the key to a better future is a digital conference featuring interactive panels, debates and presentations with world leaders, celebrity advocates, business executives, and leading advocates, innovators and changemakers.  The event will discuss the importance of education and what we can do to be more effective advocates and mobilize concrete, tangible progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 4 - equitable and inclusive quality education for all.


You will have the opportunity to attend the mainstage plenary event, hear from world leaders and network in real-time with leaders from NGOs, youth organisations, civil society, business, foundations, governments, international organizations and academia.

At the event, we will also be launching a new open source, digital report to support all of the ongoing community, national and global campaign efforts to advance education – from the early years to youth skills for the next generation.

RewirEd is a global platform launched by Dubai Cares to rewire education for a prosperous and sustainable future. Our first key initiative under this umbrella is RewirEd Talks, a global campaign that offers everyone the opportunity to host and participate in meaningful conversations on education.

This high-level Talk on the side-lines of the 75th UNGA, and taking place during the Unlock Big Change Virtual Event will be the first public Talk to take place. We are inviting participants from across various sectors, regions, and levels of experience to take part in an informal discussion on the future of education.

We invite everyone to take this opportunity to take off their organizational hats and participate in what we hope to be a relaxed conversation in an otherwise busy and hectic UNGA week.

Featured Guest: Emiliana Vegas, Senior Fellow and Co-Director, Center for Universal Education, Brookings Institution
Host: Jake Cho, Senior Manager, Global Business Coalition for Education
 
While technology has disrupted most sectors of the economy and changed how we communicate, access information, work, and even play, its impact on schools, teaching, and learning has been much more limited. Alejandro Ganimian, Emiliana Vegas and Rick Hess argue that the limited impact of technology in education is primarily due to its having been used to replace analog tools, without much consideration given to playing to technology’s comparative advantages. When schools use technology to enhance the work of teachers and to improve the quality and quantity of educational content, students will thrive.
