As a result, TVET systems must become more flexible, quicker to adapt, and put a greater focus on lifelong learning.

UNESCO (2023) - Towards a human-centered approach to the use of generative AI.  Publicly available generative AI (GenAI) tools are rapidly emerging, and the release of iterative versions is outpacing the adaptation of national regulatory frameworks. The absence of national regulations on GenAI in most countries leaves the data privacy of users unprotected and educational institutions largely unprepared to validate the tools. Based on a humanistic vision, the Guidance proposes key steps to the regulation of GenAI tool, including mandating the protection of data privacy, and setting ...

Report

The Asia Foundation (Niki Graziella Baroy, 2023) -  Over the past decade, public and private sector institutions have implemented a wide range of digital skilling programs. Given the demand for upskilling and re-skilling the workforce, these programs often have overlapping audiences, objectives, and content. A plethora of digital skilling programs are beneficial to the Asia-Pacific population, but due to a lack of information on the digital skilling landscape, there is a tendency to duplicate existing efforts. To streamline these initiatives, it is essential to address these knowledge gap...
