When: Monday, May 21, 2018, 9:00 a.m. — 5:00 p.m. EDT
On May 21, 2018, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings (CUE) and the Inter-American Development Bank, will host an international conference, which will focus on the potential of education innovations to rapidly accelerate progress in global education. Additionally, on May 22, CUE will independently host a series of private discussions on the topic.
The conference will convene a global community of education innovators, funders, policymakers, and practitioners to explore the promise of leapfrogging in education—rapidly accelerating educational progress to ensure that all young people develop the skills they need to thrive in a fast-changing world. Through a series of conversations bridging educational research and practice, participants will contribute to the global innovations community and leave with actionable insights into how they might orient their work toward a leapfrog vision of education and ultimately help our children and youth build the skills they need to constructively address the problems of tomorrow.
