The Event

During the event, the panelists and audience will explore the following questions:

  • Today, we are living in an ever more connected and ever-changing world. Knowledge upgrades itself very quickly amid rapid technology development and social progress, and has gone far beyond what a textbook could offer. So here is an imminent question for us to answer: what kind of education should we provide to today's young individuals to prepare them to face and create the world of tomorrow as young adults?
  • As adults today, how should we lead the path of education innovation?
  • What are the frontiers of thought leadership and innovative practice in education worldwide?
  • How do we understand the roles of “TEACHER” today, and what are the new roles compared with the past?
  • How could we make the best use of Internet technology to push forward education equality, and get closer to the very essence of education?


The language of the event will be Chinese.
