Our societies are witnessing an unprecedented acceleration in the use of Frontier Technologies (FT), espacially based on ICT, which have been impacting various aspects of life, leading to major transformation in human-human, and human-machine relationship. The transformation has entailed numerous and multifaceted repercussions, cognitive as well as behavioral, whick demand skills preparation, governance adoption and policies enactment.

Knowing that Technology and Education are becoming more closely interlinked call for all stakeholders, such as policy makers, educators, technologists and investors, to discuss alternative ways to harness frontier technologies efficiently into the educational sector and optimise its benefits.
