Disruptive Technology Learning Series: Upskilling Billions Through Smartphones

The Future of work is rapidly changing. With the rise of machines and automation, we need to empower and develop our people with 21-century skills, to remain relevant in the future. But, how do we empower billions of people who may never step foot inside of a classroom? How do we give them universal access to education and get them to be future-ready? If over 44% of the world's population owns a smartphone, how do we harness disruptive tech to close the skills gap between developing nations and empower them to take ownership of their learning?

Hosted by the Open Learning Campus and the World Bank Education GP hear from So-Young Kang, the Founder and CEO of Gnowbe, the first mobile learning-by-doing platform, about key trends and practical principles on how mobile micro-learning is disrupting the way people learn and how technology can be used to educate, empower and elevate billions at scale.
