UNESCO Mobile Learning Week 2018

Mobile Learning Week is UNESCO’s flagship ICT in education conference. Mobile Learning Week 2018 is organized in partnership with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations specialized agency for ICT. The event was held from 26 to 30 March 2018, at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. The 2018 event was organized under the theme “Skills for a connected world”. Participants will exchange knowledge about the ways governments and other stakeholders can define and achieve the skills-related targets specified by Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4).

The conference, consisted of four related sub-events, whch aimed to facilitate actions to:

Defining and mainstreaming digital skills;
Innovating skills provision for jobs in the digital economy;
Closing inequalities and gender divides; and
Mapping and anticipating changing skill needs

The MLW 2018 gathered participants from all over the world, and approxiamtely over 100 countries. During the week Workshops, Symosium, Policy Forum, and Strategy Labs were held. Of special interest, in my opinin was the Policy Forum, which offered a platform to discuss the different pathways that governments are using to support the development of the digital skills required in the digital economy.  Moblie learning was of course emphasized as the only way forwar to reach the UNESCO SDG4. However, there are still huge gaps around the worls on the leading  highlighted SDG€ themes on  access, equity, equality, inclusiveness, lifelong and lifewide learning, and quality.  In addition, there are even huges gaps around the world when it comes to digital competences, for iife and for education.
