26 February 2020 | 12:30 - 13:00 | The Future of Scaling Skills Development
Two organizations from Finland, ThingLink and Omnia Education Partnerships, both having a mission to solve global challenges in education, have now partnered to create a scalable solution for TVET-related (Technical and Vocational Education and Training) skills development for UNITAR (United Nations Institute for Training and Development). The global challenge we are addressing is how to teach skills to millions in diverse circumstances. In the keynote, I will share a concrete example of an immersive and scalable skills development solution. Together we are creating an interactive learning landscape going beyond traditional e-learning. The goal is to offer quality TVET solutions and skills development to vulnerable populations and hard-to-reach areas. ThingLink is a Finnish company and a visual learning solution for education, remote training and skills development. ThingLink is also a winner of the UNESCO ICT in Education prize.
