Program 2019


Nordic Conference for Educational Publishers 22.-23. august 2019

Digital learning – markets and experiences

 

In the past 5 to 8 years, digitization of the primary and lower secondary education (K12) has really taken shape. Digitization is now widely implemented – administrative systems, learning materials, learning artifacts, and the expectations of students and teachers are radically changed.

But, in which areas does digitization make a positive difference? In which areas does it make change only for the sake of change itself? And in what aspects does it create entirely new problems?

Based on the experience of the Danish market, which is the most digitized in the Nordic Countries – if not in the entire world, it is the goal of this conference to focus on some of the most important aspects of digitization and facilitate discussion, reflection, and learning.
