Embracing new technology and communication in education is the focus of the New Technologies in Education conference in Serbia. The three-day event in Belgrade features more than 100 education, technology and policy experts and leaders from more than 20 countries.

From pre-school through to university and vocational education, the aim of the interactive workshop and fair is to raise awareness of the significance and best practice of using new technologies in education, including VET.

Education practitioners will get ideas on how to become more innovative and to exploit all the possibilities of new technology. Entrepreneurs will get a chance to present their products and services that have the potential to change the education process of future generations.

'The idea is to inform policy, inspire and share good practice,' says European Training Foundation’s Alessandro Brolpito, one of the experts speaking at the high-level international policy forum, including education ministers from ETF partner countries Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia and Kosovo*.

Alessandro will speak about digital innovation and vocational education in EU candidate countries, sharing good practice examples and ETF initiatives in the partner countries. And share an update on digital and online learning in secondary VET in Serbia.

Serbia is one of 29 partner countries that the ETF is working with to improve the capacity to embrace digital online learning in vocational education and training.

The New Technologies in Education 2017 conference is organised by the British Council in partnership with the British Embassy in Belgrade, the Serbian government and chamber of commerce. For more information, including live streaming visit the website.
