The 1st Institute for the Future of Education Conference by Tecnológico de Monterrey, formerly known as CIIE
Now more than ever, there is a need to educate and prepare individuals to address the significant challenges that the world presents, with a strong commitment to ethical principles and the well-being of humanity. We are confident that innovation in education is the key to achieving this. Technological advancements provide us with a great opportunity to transform education and make it more accessible. However, in the face of events like the pandemic, urgent issues such as equal access, the digital divide, quality, and digitalization of content, new teaching strategies, assessment of learning outcomes, the role of teachers, and teacher training, emerge. These are topics that raise many questions that we must resolve through collaboration, experimentation, and ultimately, entrepreneurship.
The Meeting Space for Educational Innovation
Through nine editions, CIIE has established itself as one of the most important events in educational innovation in the Spanish-speaking world. To date, it has the participation of more than 26 thousand face-to-face attendees from more than 40 countries and more than 2.5 million views online.
