Spotlight: GEM Report Release! ✨

2023 Global Education Monitoring Report on Technology in Education: A Tool on Whose Terms?

🎒 On July 26th, UNESCO announced the release of the 2023 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report! The theme revolves around the use of technology in education: what it's doing well, how it could be improved in educational landscapes and more. A key takeaway? The focus should be on learning outcomes, accessible learning, and teacher support instead of digital inputs.

🖍 Read the report here.
