Mr. Harjiv Singh will be participating in the plenary session, 'Adopting and Adapting Technology for Learning', on Tuesday, 9th September, at 11:30AM-1:00PM at Hotel Taj Palace. The session will focus on the challenges, opportunities and successes associated with integrating technology in teaching and learning, and the importance of adopting as well as adapting technology to meet education's needs. The session will also reflect on how the learning and experiences can be applied for future strategy, policy and leadership. Other senior panelists confirmed so far include Charles Clarke, former Secretary of State for Education and Skills in England, Mr. Suresh Subramanian, Worldwide VP for Health and Education at Hewlett-Packard, and Gavin Dykes, Programme Director for ASES and the Education World Forum.
Mr. Harjiv Singh, Founder and CEO of Salwan Media said, "The burgeoning demographic dividend puts a huge responsibility on our shoulders and necessitates adoption of scalable education and learning tools. It is high time to utilize technology optimally to bring about a paradigm transformation in the education system. The 12.3% increase in India’s education outlay in the recent union budget is a welcome and positive step. Events like Asian Summit on Education and Skills and One Globe Knowledge Conference act as enablers and catalysts of education reforms by sieving best practices through knowledge sharing and building consensus among several stakeholders."
The Asian Summit on Education & Skills is India's only annual leadership event dedicated to the education & training sector, now broadening its appeal across Asia. ASES 2014 brings together influential leaders, eminent educationists and other key stakeholders to create an unparalleled platform for exchange of dialogues on policy, implementation of future practices and new growth drivers that are revolutionising the education and training sector in India and around the world.
The Summit will also feature a parallel exhibition, World Didac India 2014, showcasing educational supplies, training, technology and didactic material, which will be held at Pragati Maidan on 10-12 September, 2014, in partnership with Worlddidac Association, Didacta International, NCERT and National Institute of Open Schooling. The Summit will also feature the IDA Awards which showcase and felicitate excellence in educational products, resources, and services in and among the education and training fraternity in India.
