The annual Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM Report) is the world’s foremost publication on education. Since 2016, it has been monitoring the new post-2015 education goal and targets, which are part of the Sustainable Development Goals agenda.
The 2023 GEM Report will examine education challenges to which appropriate use of technology can offer solutions, at the same time recognizing that many of the solutions proposed may also be detrimental. The report will look at ways through which technology can help reach disadvantaged learners, while ensuring more knowledge reaches a greater number of learners in engaging and cheaper formats.
As part of the data gathering process for the upcoming report, UNESCO-UNEVOC and the GEM Report co-organized a consultation for UNEVOC Network members in October 2022. The 90-minute session centred on issues related to the role of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) in the promotion of technological development and digitalization.
UNEVOC Centres from 11 countries and all 5 regions of the UNEVOC Network took part in the online consultation and discussed best practices in linking TVET systems with local/national technological development, updating curricula to promote technological development, and integrating digital skills in TVET curricula. The TVET experts also put forward the main challenges faced by the TVET sector in adopting a digital skills-enriched curriculum. The wide range of experiences, case studies and insights shared during the consultation, such as the ones highlighted below, will help to shape the chapter on TVET and technological development in the 2023 report.
The following examples were of particular relevance for the 2023 GEM Report:
