Abstract

The theme of EDUsummIT 2011 was “Building a Global Community of Policy-makers, Researchers, and Teachers to Move Education Systems into the Digital Age”. EDUsummIT 2011 was held June 8-11 at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. This invitational summit brought together an international group of 120 researchers, poli­cy-makers, teachers, journal editors, private sector leaders, and winners of the UNESCO King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize for the Use of ICTs in Education. They came to dis­cuss critical issues in the use of Information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve education. The summit included both interactive plenary sessions and breakout sessions, in which eight working groups addressed various dimensions and issues related to moving educational systems into the digital age.
