The History and Origins of International Education Day

Initiated by UNESCO in 2018, International Education Day is an annual celebration of education for peace and development. Its objective is to raise public awareness of the significance of international education, and foster cooperation, understanding, and respect among people from various backgrounds and cultures. The theme for International Education Day in 2023 is “to invest in people, prioritize education.”

The Impact of Digitization on Education

International Education Day presents a great opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the value of education and the enormous strides made in the area of education as a result of digitization. Teachers and students may now access knowledge from all around the world because of the advancements made in contemporary technology. It has also improved learning effectiveness, enabling us to learn more in a shorter amount of time. Learning is now more engaging and participatory because of the seamless integration of technology into classrooms made possible by digitization. As a result of digitization, educators now have access to a wide range of tools and resources that enable them to provide students with compelling and long-lasting learning experiences. In the present digital age, numerous firms have enhanced and sustained the proliferation of online learning using technology, for example, mySecondTeacher and Jelajah Ilmu. Together, these entities have united to offer a comprehensive educational solution making it accessible to all individuals. Through their revolutionary pedagogy embedded into the content and various academic enhancing features, they've been able to help 70% of users achieve distinction.

Digitization has also had a significant influence on education, providing innovative approaches to teaching and learning as well as easier access to resources and information. One example of this is the integration of technology from companies like Acer into educational settings. Acer, as a leading provider of education technology, has helped to make digital resources more accessible and user-friendly for students and teachers.

On International Education Day, we recognize the significance of providing access to education for all and the role that technology can play in making this a reality. The use of digital tools, such as those offered by Acer, can help to bridge the digital divide and provide students in underprivileged communities with the same opportunities as their more privileged peers. By leveraging technology to enhance the educational experience, We can contribute to the development of a more inclusive and fair global society.
