The Forum seeks to reaffirm the commitments made in the ‘Qingdao Declaration’ and reinforce the inter-sectoral and multi-stakeholder platform that was fostered during the Conference in 2015. It will also work to deepen North-South knowledge exchange, facilitate the design of cooperation strategies, and outline action plans to scale up the digital innovations and capitalize on best practices that accelerate progress towards Education 2030. To this effect, concrete proposals on a global action network and pilot test projects for leveraging ICT to achieve Education 2030 will be presented and discussed.
The objectives of the Forum are to:
- share national policies and programmes that aim to capture digital innovations to accelerate the achievement of SDG 4
- explore the digital innovations and best practices that could be scaled to enable new school models and transform the education provision
- formulate partnerships and develop action plans around flagship projects on leveraging ICT to take forward SDG 4
