Convergence of Industry Heavyweights and a Surprise Guest Appearance
GES 2017 is hosted by the China Development Research Foundation, Beijing Normal University, Tencent, GSV Capital, and TAL Education Group, and is under the direct guidance of the Development Research Center of the State Council and the Ministry of Education of the People’s Republic of China. Academic partners Tsinghua University and Arizona State University will work with Baby Tree, VIPKID, iFLYTEK and DadaABC using Tencent’s live-streaming cloud platform to bring GES from China to the world.
It is worth noting that two of the organizations behind GES—Arizona State University and GSV—are also the eponymous hosts of the annual ASU + GSV Summit held in the United States. Their historical roster of big-name speakers from diverse sectors—including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, 微软 founder Bill Gates, and Khan Academy founder Salman Khan— promises an equally impressive line-up for GES 2017, featuring our special guest. The attendee list for this year’s Summit is comprised of hundreds of leading figures from the worlds of politics, business and education, including Director of the Development Research Center of the State Council Li Wei, Vice Chairman and General Secretary of the China Development Research Foundation Lu Mai, President of Beijing Normal University Dong Qi, Vice Provost at Harvard University Peter K. Bol, Stanford University professor Scott Rozelle, renowned science fiction writer Liu Cixin, Guokr founder Ji Shisan, and Chen Yidan, one of the core founders of Tencent and the creator of the Yidan Prize in education research and development. They will share their interesting insight on the ways technology and online education are transforming the world.
30场跨界巅峰对话 “教育+科技” 赋能智慧未来
30 Cross-Sector Discussions: “Education + Technology” Bringing Wisdom to the Future
In recent years, fast paced economic development has driven a widespread application of technology in the education sector. New technology and innovations in teaching and research have become the driving force behind future education. Both in China and abroad, edtech giants are adapting to this wave and are actively seeking out cross-sector integration and innovation in education technology.
Chinese companies like TAL have been able to display the enormous potential of the Chinese education market, as well as the rapid advancement of educational technology at events like ASU + GSV. As the only edtech company among this year’s GES hosts, TAL is seeking to explore ways to advance innovation and education within China. The company has taken part in organizing keynotes, roundtable discussions, and company demos, and arranging over 30 sessions covering topics like opportunities in China and the global education market, 21st century skills, and artificial intelligence and personalized learning. We hope to explore the direction of education in China, education throughout the world, and the future of education using technology through the exchange of ideas.
The "Two Giants" Finale: Chinese Education Enterprises Speak to the World
The finale of the summit will feature the dual front-runners of the education industry, New Oriental founder Yu Minhong, and TAL Education founder Zhang Bangxin. This exchange will bring in-depth insight into China’s education sector from two industry leaders.
With the trend of globalization, an increase in active international relations, open dialogue and resource sharing, edtech will assist in speeding up global development. As Asia's largest contributor to economic growth and the education sector, China has become an important force in promoting the advancement of education technology. The unveiling of GES in China will give evidence to China's status in global education. Nov 27, we're ready.
