The International Festival of Learning

ABOUT IFL EAST

The International Festival of Learning is more than just a one-off festival…it’s a movement of interconnected educators and businesses, aligned with the same mission.

Founded in 2016 with a successful pilot involving more than 1200 delegates, the festival has grown in size and status – and now commands one of the top spots in the UK education calendar.

The key focus for 2019 is underpinned by the Pearson – Future of Skills Report 

THE SIX TECH CHALLENGE AREAS

The ‘Six Challenge Areas’ draw inspiration from an announcement in August 2018 by Education secretary Damian Hinds, who issued a challenge to the technology industry – to bring about a “step-change in education”.

We have added a sixth area – ‘Leadership in an Ai World’ – because we believe that the uniquely human skills of leadership will be vital in sustaining life in a world where artificial intelligence and humanity will increasingly co-exist.
