2021/2 GEM Report

Coming soon: 2023 GEM Report

The 2023 GEM Report on technology and education will be launched on 26 July 2023 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The report will tackle the divisions surrounding technology's role in education, exploring its potential solutions to education challenges while recognizing that proposed solutions may also pose risks.

Leadership and education

Leadership is at the heart of quality education. It has been argued that it is the second most important school factor explaining learning outcomes. Leaders at multiple levels matter, from those within the school, to those outside of the school, and even those outside of education systems.

The new concept note for the 2024/5 GEM Report, developed based on a  think-piece  by David Gurr, details how the theme will be explored. 

Join our consultation using the comments section on this webpage or by emailing us to provide feedback on this concept note, suggest relevant evidence for the theme or new areas of research to be explored.
