The world is in the middle of a learning revolution. The ever-accelerating pace of development and adoption of technology is poised to further disrupt and transform education and learning for people of all ages and backgrounds around the globe. Access to content alone does not directly translate to effective learning, particularly in a world that is being reshaped by systemic changes, such as climate change and biodiversity loss, impacting multiple generations.
