This invitation-only event addressed the question: How do we harness technology and the social change it brings in order to enhance learning?

Catch up on the Summit with videos of the keynote speeches, afternoon sessions, and podcasts and blogs from the speakers.

Global educational leaders took part in discussions, workshops and expos to explore this fascinating topic.

There is no one answer as to how each one of our institutions should react to these changes – but it is important that we think through what is happening and how we harness those changes to best effect for our learners. The summit explored how we in education manage technology and the social change it brings, to consider how to enhance learning via that technology, and discussed how these opportunities and challenges affect us differently in different parts of the world.

We know more about how students learn than ever before, we see societies and students changing as technology advances impact them, and the rate of technological change continues at speed both inside and outside the classroom. With introductions by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge, Professor Stephen Toope, and chaired by Saul Nassé, Chief Executive of Cambridge Assessment, the event started with a plenary session in which our three keynote speakers explored the cognitive, social and technological dimensions of the question.

In the afternoon a series of smaller breakout sessions delved deeper into different aspects of each dimension.
