how will we learn?


Events at a glance

Our programme of activity examined how education needs to adapt to equip our children for tomorrow’s world. 

Developments in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, nanotechnology and 3D printing are transforming the workplace. It is predicted that by 2055, half of today’s work activities could be automated. It is crucial that education adapts for a future we can only imagine, including preparing our children for jobs that don’t yet exist. As our world transforms, we need to ensure that all our children are adequately equipped not only to thrive but to contribute. 

The UK Pavilion united Industry leaders and academics to investigate how the education sector is developing the tools and approaches to deliver future focused high quality lifelong learning for everyone.  

Topics covered included:

  • Educating children for the needs of the 21st century
  • AI in Learning

  • The classroom of the future and role of the teacher 

  • Aid Funded Education

  • Green skills

Global questions our programme explored includes: 

  • What makes Teachers great?

  • Is the classroom dead? 

  • How to create a culture of wellbeing and support mental health in schools?

  • How education can promote gender equality for women in the workforce?
