The opening address will be from the Norwegian Minister of Education and Integration,
Mr Jan Tore Sanner, and the topic will be “The goals of Edtech used in Norwegian education”.
The Minister of Education and Integration is responsible for primary and secondary school, upper secondary and tertiary vocational education, educational loans and grants, adult education and skills and integration. The minister is also responsible for Nordic cooperation.
Through edtech, control over education is being handed to some of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful technology entrepreneurs, who want data, algorithms and AI to determine the future of learning itself. Should we let them take control of the classroom, or can we use edtech differently to shape positive futures for young people?
KnowHow EdTech 2019 will focus on The Impact of EdTech. Impact on the personal, organizational and societal level. How do technology influence you on a daily basis, in your educational, professional as well as in your social life? This will be the main topics for this years conference. More program details will be launched soon.
"It is very important to have these conferences where tech-people and teachers have the opportunity to meet. It is essential to use the schools to bridge the knowledge gap between the pupils and make sure everyone gets equal knowledge and competence to use technology." Jan Tore Sanner, Norwegian Minister for Education and Integration
