Following up from that, El-Khili focused on the changing nature of education in the 21st century and how it has differed from that of the 20th century. He mentioned how technology is now playing a huge part in children's’ everyday lives, both educational and non-educational wise, affecting their development and understanding in ways that are different to that of the previous century. He went on to refer to a UNESCO handbook designed to guide parents towards ways they can control the use of technology in their households to best cater to their child’s development.
“Education should be transformative,” El-Khili enthused, further highlighting the goal of UNESCO’s handbook. To conclude the first part of his presentation, El-Khili quickly discussed the way ministries were eliminating certain topic from curriculums due to them becoming irrelevant in our modern day context, with him being of the opinion that doing this is wrong and that ministries should aim to change in an adaptive way rather than completely eliminate certain topics.
