Conference Theme: The Learning Economy

  • How to make it The Learning Economy

    The knowledge-based economy we live in today demands a strategy of lifelong learning and knowledge development. Lifelong learning has become the single most important driver of success, and with it the driving force behind innovation. This makes the issue of learning and skills, as it relates to transformational adaptability, the most business-critical factor of our times.

    Education is no longer an isolated event, but a lifelong learning opportunity. How can we optimize our efforts to continuously build on and develop our knowledge and talents? At EdTech Sweden 2017, we will bring focus to the structures, technologies and formats that enable lifelong learning while highlighting the major players in edtech today. We have chosen to divide the day into four areas all addressing different topics related to The Learning Economy:

  • Educational Programs of the Future

    How should future educational programs be designed? How should we relate to learning and what kind of knowledge will be sought? What role will the existing colleges and universities take, and who will be the new education challengers?

  • Formats of the Future

    What do the current structures look like for lifelong learning? What needs to change and be developed? New pedagogy and new technology open up for completely new ways of learning, what do the new successful forms and formats of learning look like?

  • Business of the Future

    How do Sweden's largest companies reason and act in terms of employee and learning issues? And who are the most exciting startups and investors who challenge existing structures and business models?

  • Technologies of the Future

    What opportunities and challenges are the ever faster technology development and digitization creating? In what way does technology like VR, AR and AI affect the business? How does the learning process change and develop through digitization and technology development?

  • Some of the key topics for discussion

    What do the current structures for lifelong learning look like? What needs to change and to be developed?
    Technological advances are critical -- how do we best leverage them?
    Who are the key players? (up-and-comers, start-ups, institutions of learning)
    What do the new forms and formats for successful learning look like?
    How should companies best adapt to and benefit from the need for lifelong learning?
