Mr Morten Jacobsen will be presenting in two sessions:

What should participants expect to hear in your sessions? What topics will you cover?
They can expect to hear about how everyday technology can be used to make the lives better for students that can’t attend school.

Why do you think global collaboration is so important in education?
I think global collaboration is more important now than ever because we live in an open and connected world, with very few digital borders. Students as well as teachers need to learn how to collaborate end engage with people from all over the world, if they want to be prepared for the labour market of tomorrow.

New technology and innovative ideas inspire me, and people that think out-of-the-box
