Our mission at Blackboard, “everyone educated,” is admittedly ambitious, but this past week, we teamed up with the U.S. Embassies in the Philippines and Thailand to take a step toward this goal in those countries. Blackboard hosted two round-table discussions with world leaders in higher education on how we can work together to provide students a world-class education as a means to improve those nations’ economies.
These events featured engaging conversations with key education leaders from the Philippines, Thailand and abroad on regional educational technology imperatives, and how technology can be used to drive economic growth and move these countries to more knowledge-based economies. Speakers shared how Blackboard technology was used to train close to 7 million citizens to build a better labor market and improve local economies in Latin America.
We at Blackboard are proud to share our expertise in using technology to enhance learning, and will continue to partner with world leaders to lead the discussion around the future of education in the U.S. and abroad.
