"Despite all the technological advances and overall complexity of the world, we are losing the most important thing - the ability to communicate with each other. Where does this lead to? In Sweden, 40% of the adult population lives alone. The same is happening all over the world. It has become easier and more convenient for a lot of people to immerse themselves in the digital world. We're increasingly facing the problem of not being able to communicate with each other. So, at the Stockholm School of Economics in Russia, we focus on communication and the ability to analyze the flows of information coming from the outside world. And I see this as the challenge of education in the digital world," Vsevolod Krylov noted in his speech.

During the session, the best Russian and foreign practices of educational transformation were presented, which involved all levels of studying - from pre-school to further professional education. Each experience is unique in its own way and worthy of further scaling.
