Limited Capacity seats available

The Smart Nation initiative is Singapore government’s attempt to harness technology to improve the lives of citizens and to strengthen the community and society, enabled seamlessly and connected by technology. Already, technology is adopted across the consumer, enterprise and government segments in areas such as healthcare, transport and energy management, including education.

In a Smart Nation, beyond encouraging budding ICT enthusiasts and professionals to create and build technical capabilities through “tinkering with tech” and “making”, what are the impact and implications on education as a whole? What kind of students do we need to produce so that they are equipped and ready with the future skills required as we move forward in realizing the Smart Nation vision?

This panel comprises experts from various segments in sharing their views and perspectives.
