The event will be held from 26 to 30 March at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
The 2018 event will be organized under the theme “Skills for a connected world”. Participants will exchange knowledge about the ways governments and other stakeholders can define and achieve the skills-related targets specified by Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4).
The conference, consisting of four related sub-events, will facilitate actions to:
- Defining and mainstreaming digital skills;
- Innovating skills provision for jobs in the digital economy;
- Closing inequalities and gender divides; and
- Mapping and anticipating changing skill needs
The sub-themes and sub-events of the conference are explained in detail in the concept note. Overall, Mobile Learning Week 2018 will provide a platform to share exemplary practices in mobile learning, with a specific focus on blending ‘non-digital’ education approaches and mobile learning applications in order to reduce inequality, spur innovative approaches to teaching and learning, and bridge formal and non-formal systems.
