Technology and Education: Empowering Youth Worldwide

July 24, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: School days.

All children start with the same passions, imagination, and desire to learn. But according to UNESCO’s Education for All Global Monitoring Report, “Ensuring that all children access upper secondary education by 2030 will remain beyond the grasp of the international community unless priorities are re-considered.”

Is easy access to education just the responsibility of parents, governments and schools, or does the private sector play a role and if so, how? And are enough jobs available for youth who get an education?

The experts speak:

Karim Ramji, Deloitte: “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” (Nelson Mandela)

Oisin Walton, Vodaphone Foundation: “It’s no longer a question of technology, it’s a question of imagination.” (Jean-Francois Cazenave)

Alicia Lenze, SAP: “Technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the results that make our hearts sing.” (Steve jobs)
