During July 2023, the European Digital Education Hub organised 2 webinars focused on digital changemakers in education. During the webinars, participants focused on digital transformation of education while exchanging shared experiences and best practices. Read below more about the key insights and upcoming publications.
Digital changemakers are individuals, organisations or initiatives which use digital tools and technologies to create positive social impact. In the field of education, they use their expertise to ensure inclusive and personalised learning experiences for students, while supporting educators in developing the necessary digital skills. To achieve an overall enhanced teaching and learning experience, they often blend traditional classroom instructions with:
- use of devices
- educational software
- learning management systems
- emerging technologies, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR)
Insights from webinars
Digital changemakers: how to thrive in the age of digital transformation in the education system
During the webinar, guest experts presented holistic approaches to digital transformation in educational institutions. Together with participants, they explored how to encourage students, employees and leaders to become digital changemakers, and identified key future skills and best training practices to achieve this goal.
The digital changemakers: programmes, initiatives and case studies
The webinar was moderated by Educraftor, the team in charge of the Hub’s Accelerator programme. They presented case studies, including innovation initiatives developed through the programme. The discussion topics focused on better understanding EdTech (educational technology) and identifying the necessary steps to transform a grassroots idea into a working solution applicable in digital education.
