Event Highlights

Cengage/National Geographic and Equal Innovation invite you to a two-part seminar intended to drive discussion and awareness around education technologies and strategies to improve educational outcomes among learners in Sarawak and all of Malaysia. Education technologies based on research & development provide better, more impactful products and services for people to learn. Secondly, innovative technology, when translated into products and services by entrepreneurs, can often create significant cost savings so that they are affordable to the majority of people. The virtual forum will feature insights about education today, with a particular focus on sustainability, connecting to Sarawak Vision 2030 and the Malaysia PCDS development plan.

We will bring together a multi-disciplinary group of actors, including leading government officials from the federal government of Malaysia and the state of Sarawak, where Cengage already partners with local education agencies, as well as education officials from the United Nations, foreign governments, ed tech startups, philanthropists and investors. Remarks will also be provided by a National Geographic Explorer. Over the course of the seminar, speakers will discuss and address the following topics:

  • Artificial intelligence in education
  • Employability in a sustainable economy
  • Forest preservation approaches and training
  • Early childhood education – a successful case partnership between the State of Sarawak and Cengage/National Geographic
