POST-COVID EDUCATION CHALLENGES

Lifelong learning opportunities in the era of artificial intelligence

Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4), “Quality Education,” explores the urgent need to ensure inclusive, equitable, and quality education by promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all individuals.

Education is a powerful weapon in the fight against poverty and social injustice. SDG 4 states that education “liberates the intellect, unlocks the imagination and is fundamental for self-respect. It is the key to prosperity and opens a world of opportunities, making it possible for each of us to contribute to a progressive, healthy society.” Besides being one of the pleasures and rewards of human existence, education is also indispensable for promoting peace, democracy, environmental sustainability, citizenship, and for the realization of other human rights.

This powerful and inclusive vision of education as an equalizing force in society depends on the abilities of national governments to build equitable public education systems.

The right to education was dramatically brought into focus during the Covid-19 pandemic, as schools around the world were forced to close. UNESCO estimates that a year after the beginning of the pandemic, almost half of the world’s students were affected by a total or partial closure of their schools. Prioritizing the recovery of education is essential to avoid a generational catastrophe.

Artificial intelligence could be used to mitigate and overcome the gaps in schooling that stemmed from classroom closures during the pandemic. However, the lack of connectivity and devices available to students and teachers in most public schools from peripheral and vulnerable regions and communities, including indigenous and quilombola people, has accentuated regional inequalities.

The de facto inclusion of students and teachers will only be possible if they are granted access to connectivity, devices, and teacher training.

The speakers in this session will highlight the potential use of technology to improve learning opportunities, especially for vulnerable groups.

The need to re-think education systems in light of the advances in artificial intelligence is essential, but it requires significant engagement with all stakeholders, regulatory frameworks, and cross-sector collaboration, as well as ensured internet connectivity.

Artificial intelligence could be used to mitigate and overcome the gaps in schooling that stemmed from classroom closures during the pandemic. However, the lack of connectivity and devices available to students and teachers in most public schools from peripheral and vulnerable regions and communities, including indigenous and quilombola people, has accentuated regional inequalities.

The de facto inclusion of students and teachers will only be possible if they are granted access to connectivity, devices, and teacher training.

The speakers in this session will highlight the potential use of technology to improve learning opportunities, especially for vulnerable groups.

The need to re-think education systems in light of the advances in artificial intelligence is essential, but it requires significant engagement with all stakeholders, regulatory frameworks, and cross-sector collaboration, as well as ensured internet connectivity.

The rapid pace of change in the global economy means that acquiring job-related technical skills is no longer enough. There is an urgent need to provide people with soft skills, such as metacognitive and entrepreneurial skills, critical and creative thinking, and social and emotional intelligence.

The old model based on learning, working, and retiring is no longer applicable. A new model that focuses on learning, engaging, and the ability to adapt to change at all stages of life is more appropriate to address both individual and societal needs.

Enterprises should be encouraged to get involved in lifelong learning processes. On the one hand, many adults worldwide still struggle with basic literacy and numeracy. On the other hand, vocational education creates new opportunities for innovation, employability, and capacity building, while fostering social and economic development.

The rapid pace of change in the global economy means that acquiring job-related technical skills is no longer enough. There is an urgent need to provide people with soft skills, such as metacognitive and entrepreneurial skills, critical and creative thinking, and social and emotional intelligence.

The old model based on learning, working, and retiring is no longer applicable. A new model that focuses on learning, engaging, and the ability to adapt to change at all stages of life is more appropriate to address both individual and societal needs.

Enterprises should be encouraged to get involved in lifelong learning processes. On the one hand, many adults worldwide still struggle with basic literacy and numeracy. On the other hand, vocational education creates new opportunities for innovation, employability, and capacity building, while fostering social and economic development.
