Educating Entrepreneurs Cross-Disciplinary Innovation at Work

by Professor Tuula Teeri, President, Aalto University
Global Education Industry Summit Oct 19-20, 2015

Most countries define education as a public good and a prime responsibility of public policy. But at the same time an education industry is developing, often at a global scale, offering various kinds of products and services to schools. This is most markedly the case in educational technology, but also in the field of educational resources, textbooks, and various kinds of support services. Moreover, global education industry leaders often express their views on the future of education and stress the need for 21st century skills and pedagogy.

The time is ripe to establish a dialogue between ministers of education and the global education industry. To that end, the OECD, the European Commission and host country Finland invite ministers of education and industry leaders to the Global education Industry Summit in Helsinki.

This summit will be a platform to bring together ministers of education, innovators and leaders of the private sector industries to discuss and engage in issues about education and strategies for innovation. It will enable the exploration of opportunities offered by innovation in teaching and learning, in order to leverage quality and equity of educational outcomes. The idea is to foster an innovation ecosystem in education, to explore the opportunities offered by innovation in teaching and learning, and to discuss the framework conditions for innovation in education which would leverage quality and equity of education’s outcomes.
