I. Symposium Theme

Cultivating Core Competences in a Changing Technological Society

 

21st century observes societal reforms that leap forward at fullest speed in human history. It also witnesses technology revolutions that push back mankind boundaries on a daily basis. In this rapid changing era, education itself is facing various grand challenges, one of which is raised by the question of what kind of students we wish to prepare for the future, especially the core competences we are obligated to cultivate in our students in response to the quick and convenient ways of grasping knowledge, thanks to new technologies. During the INEI 2018 symposium at BNU, scholars from different countries will get together and discuss what the core competences in a changing technological society are, and as educators, in what ways we should cultivate them.

 

技术快速变革社会的人才核心素养培育

21世纪是有史以来社会变革最快速的时代,是伴随日新月异技术变革的时代。教育在这个技术快速变革的社会里面临着严峻的挑战,挑战之一来自教育要培养什么样人的问题的解决和回答,尤其是就技术带来知识获得的快速性和便捷性而提出的应该培养什么核心素养的挑战。本次会议不同国家的学者们将围绕技术快速变革社会的人才核心素养培育展开讨论。
