Conclusions – Final Thoughts ICT alone will not transform education • The educational sector requires a holistic change to address the needs of an ICT- structured economy; • ICT itself should assume the role of a lever for the change required within the educational sector; • Such a process requires time and generations of students, apprentices & workers; • The Education sector together with industry and society can/must together collaborate to a greener and healthier future.
