Essay Question

1

For millions of children around the world the right to education remains inaccessible. How should the global society seek to leverage the opportunities brought by digital connectivity to deliver essential learning to all?

2

The Internet facilitates life-long learning on a whole new level, unimaginable to previous generations. How can we ensure that more people benefit from this opportunity? How can access to meaningful content contribute to their personal development and life improvement?

3

The disruptive power of digital learning tools and resources is hard to underestimate. How is this impacting our traditional ways of acquiring knowledge? Are opinions formed in isolation — or within closed communities — a threat? And what should be the role of the teacher when every piece of information is just a click away?
