In close partnership with the Korean Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) and the Korea Education Research & Information Service (KERIS), the World Bank supports an annual global symposium on ICT and education issues for senior policymakers and practitioners each year in Seoul, South Korea. This is one important component of a strong multi-year partnership between the World Bank education sector and the Republic of Korea exploring the use of ICTs in the education sector around the world.
The global symposium is typically held in coordination with a number of partner organizations, including UNESCO-Bangkok and Intel. The symposium theme changes each year; while the size and scope of each event differs, typically 60-80 policymakers from around 20 countries participate each year.
The 2011 global symposium will occur from 7-10 November in Seoul.
