Planning education policies is planning one country’s future. How is public data being used to plan and monitor educational policies?

In this talk, we discuss the shift towards a new Knowledge Geopolitics, in which education is playing an increasing role. Added to that, the distance learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic brings a new set of issues for public education.

Data was always been used to monitor educational policies, but how is this new data, that has been generated into the distance learning platforms, are been used? What amount of crucial information are we trusting into profit-driven actors? And who is not taking advantage of the information available?

Those questions were present in this exciting talk!
