Designing enlightED

On 17 June, 1 and 8 July, do not miss ‘Designing enlightED’, a new participative space for reflection and discussion where together with you we will be able to build the new enlightED2021 Hybrid Edition, our global conference on education, technology and innovation.

What are the challenges of an increasingly hybrid and personalised education? Will technology help accelerate the acquisition of new professional skills? How have entrepreneurship ecosystems changed this past year?

There will be two opportunities to join each of these 3 meetings: in a Discussion at the Espacio Fundación Telefónica with four expert guests that you can follow in person or on our YouTube channel; and in a digital collaboration laboratory where, organised into teams and online workrooms, we will share concerns, inspirations and lines of actions to design enlightED 2021 Hybrid Edition.
