Education Transformation in a Digital Age


Students and parents are demanding more from education. Education systems need to empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow. How can education leaders better harness technology to personalize learning and enable every student to reach their full potential?

Experience around Europe, Middle East and Africa is showing the way to build accessible and affordable learning platforms. Increasing numbers of schools are adopting modern tools for a collaborative and engaging classroom. Students are developing creativity and future ready skills through new applications and approaches to the curriculum.


November 12 and 13, 2018

 

Join us in Brussels for one-and-a-half-day of inspiring presentations, case studies and exciting demos to explore these topics. This invitation-only workshop will explore exemplary cases and situate them in a structure framework for digital transformation that can enable student success.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Microsoft EBC in Brussels as we seek to ‘Empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more’!
