Global launch 2023 GEM Report

The global launch of the 2023 GEM Report on technology in education will take place on 26-27 July 2023 in Montevideo, Uruguay, a country that is widely recognized for its pioneering stance on technology in education. This is the first time that the global launch of the report is taking place in Latin America.

Co-hosted by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Uruguay and Ceibal Foundation , the global launch event will bring together ministers of education and ministers of information and communications technology, alongside regional organizations, international donors, parents, teachers, civil society, and representatives from the private sector. With the help of the recommendations and policy examples in the GEM Report, as well as more than 200 PEER country profiles on technology and education, the event aims to promote a high-level dialogue around the opportunities and challenges for the use of technology in education, and the conditions that need to be met for technology to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 on education.

A series of side-events will be organized on 26 and 27 July in partnership with Ceibal Foundation and other key stakeholders.
