Emerging Europe Talks the Future of Education with Sayasat Nurbek

Technology has significantly expanded access to education. We saw that firsthand during the Covid-19 pandemic. It has also begun to change the roles of teachers and learners. The teacher’s role is changing as students take more responsibility for their own learning using technology to gather relevant information.  

But the impact of technology is even more profound than that. Advances in technology have led to the automation of many tasks, which has led to the creation of new job roles that require different skills. 

“We need to really teach our students to adapt, to learn, constantly relearn what they’ve learned so far and unlearn certain things that would limit them from learning new things,” says Sayasat Nurbek, Kazakhstan’s minister of science and higher education 

He speaks with Andrew Wrobel about how Kazakhstan is reinventing its approach to education, its educational system and the role teachers play in the process.
