“Innovators, educators and policymakers need to talk better together and I do not think that is only a case in Norway”, says Oddgeir Tveiten. He is part of a team that will be launching a new learning experience platform on June 12th, in the Oslo Opera. An international network of researchers and innovators are in Norway to participate in the launch.
“Digital technologies are impacting on society in completely new ways. Relations between higher education and work life are changing. I think what we need the most in the Nordic countries is a sense of new collaboration between innovators, educators and policy-makers and that is what this project will help us enable”.
The partnership to be launched is called Nordic Futures and will consist of stakeholders across all the Nordic countries. As part of the launch, the founder and CEO of EdCast Karl Mehta will be in Norway to speak at two conferences and demonstrate the EdCast Learning Experience platform.
“EdCast enables Learning and Development teams to innovate at massive scale and build an agile and smart workforce. It does so by building a culture of life-long learning and utilizing Artificial Intelligence to provide timely, customized lessons to improve performance on a daily basis”, says Karl Mehta, founder and CEO of EdCast.
