Isn’t this year flying by? We can’t believe it’s time for us to gear up for 2022’s Education World Forum (EWF).
From Sunday 22nd – Wednesday 25th May, we’ll be joining education and skills ministers from over 100 countries at the event which strives to address the new and long-term education system challenges faced around the world in light of the pandemic – and solve them.
Embracing the digital world
The theme for 2022 is ‘building forward together; stronger, bolder, better’, and we will be exhibiting alongside other industry experts and EdTech companies to share how Kortext can help guide institutions and entire countries further into the digital world – starting with their eTextbook and digital resource provision and improving reading list management processes.
Equity and collaborative innovation
During the course of the 4 days, EWF will examine several questions around how the industry needs to develop to serve the students of tomorrow.
Covering topics like improving equity, accelerating collaborative innovation and building resilient infrastructure, the event provides an opportunity for organisations, institutions and governments to share ideas and successes with a view to enhance teaching and learning across the globe.
As the world-leading student learning content and engagement platform, Kortext has the tools to help prepare the next generation of difference makers for a bright and prosperous future.
Digital content and equity
Providing a gateway to over 2 million eBooks and 10,000 open access (OA) and open education resources (OER), Kortext facilitates equity of access and experience for all. Many universities now using Kortext to supply digital content for their programmes – removing the financial burden on the student – and encourage deep engagement with study materials.
Rarely is innovation born from a single person’s thinking; it takes research and the meeting of minds to change the world. Whilst the new ways of teaching and learning explored during the pandemic have their benefits, remote and blended learning can be isolating – which is why we encourage students to use Kortext’s group collaboration tools to connect them with their peers and academics.
Users can set up study groups, share notes, annotations and highlights within their digital texts both on and offline, and ultimately enjoy the opportunity to learn from one another – wherever they are in the world.
As global education events go, EWF is a big one and we’re incredibly excited to be showcasing what Kortext can do.
