International Forum on K-12 Digital Learning

Sep 28, 2019

R509, General Building, National Taiwan Normal University, Taipei, Taiwan

To prepare each student’s digital learning literacy and to ensure the inclusive opportunities for all in education, the Ministry of Education in Taiwan promotes the K-12 Digital Learning Plan. This is in line with the goal of “Education 2030” announced by UNESCO, that is, to ensure the spirits of the quality, the equity and the sustainability in education.

Currently, in Taiwan, to help students become autonomous learners, we emphasize on training teachers for integrating technology into teaching. Adapted learning and individualized learning are also emphasized and encouraged. Regarding the construction of learning platforms and the integration of learning resources, we collaborate with NGOs to provide various technology-enhanced teaching resources and learning environments. To minimize the digital divide, we especially support, with the highest priority, the collaborative projects working with the public schools in rural areas of Taiwan.

The goal of this international K-12 digital learning forum is to exchange the experience with international scholars and experts regarding the policy and practical issues in K-12 digital learning. This forum also provides an opportunity for educators, policy makers, school administrators and private sectors to interact with each other in Taiwan. The themes of the forum will be focused on: (1) the national digital learning policy and practices in each country; (2) the strategies to promote teachers’ digital teaching proficiency and to promote students’ self-regulated learning; (3) the approaches to promote the collaborations among governments, academics, school leaders, teachers and private sectors for enhancing digital learning.
