Keynote by Andreas Schleicher

The global economy is being transformed by technological advances such as artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing techniques and technology-enabled platforms, inducing structural shifts in our labour markets. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will lead to further structural transformations. The education system plays a key role during this transformation. It will support the transition best if the curriculum is coherent across levels and countries, if it forward-looking by conveying required competencies such as creativity and emotional intelligence, and if it is inclusive to all citizens to improve social cohesion. This Global Table will discuss how these goals can be achieved. It will also discuss how global policy responses to the the COVID-19 pandemic threaten the educational system and the effective delivery of education, and what can be done to prepare for the post-crisis period.
