Featured Sessions

Educating Away Hate

This session brings audiences into a very timely discussion on countering extremism and how young people, schools, and communities can best challenge hate narratives. Groundswell Project UK has been working in schools countering hate narratives from the far-right, to Islamism, to misogynist extremism and other forms of violence.

Empowering College Hopefuls Through YouTube

This discussion covers a new partnership between Arizona State University Learning Enterprise and Crash Course called Study Hall, that makes ASU college courses available for credit for the first time through YouTube, providing aspiring college students with a new, flexible and accessible pathway to a degree. This shows the power of innovative opportunities to embed access to education.

Partnering to Defeat the Scourge of Learning Loss

As we emerge from 3 years of a global pandemic, we’re left to face and repair the issues laid bare in our education systems. Learn how families, students, educators and industry must come together as partners in unprecedented ways. Innovative and bold thinking is required to roll back these steep losses, before they affect learning - and the economy - for years to come.
