Asia Pacific Ministerial Forum on ICT in Education 2013

The Asia-Pacific Ministerial Forum on ICT in Education (AMFIE) has been annually organized by UNESCO Asia and the Pacific Regional Bureau for Education (UNESCO Bangkok) since 2010. The AMFIE has been a platform for policy-level dialogue and sharing of promising models and experiences in developing, adapting and monitoring ICT in Education policies and practices.

Built upon this format, the AMFIE 2013 is designed to contribute to the discourse on having a healthy balance between top-down strategic policy interventions and bottom-up field-level initiatives to enable relevant, effective, and sustainable ICT-supported educational innovations to flourish and expand. Therefore, the theme of the AMFIE 2013 is Fostering Favourable Policy Environments for Mainstreaming Sustainable Innovations”. This year’s AMFIE will bring together three key actors in mainstreaming ICT in educational systems: policy makers, researchers, and practitioners. Focused ministerial-level discussion and participatory reflections will promote dialogue among policy, research, and practice.


Sub-themes

1) Fostering Institutional Change with Policy Interventions

2) Scaling-up Teacher Professional Development to Support Students’ 21st Century Skills

3) Promoting Exchange of Discourse among Different Education Stakeholders at Macro-, Meso- and Micro- Levels for Up-scaling

4) Mainstreaming School Innovations: Case Studies


Forum Objectives
