Dear GLL members and friends, 

We are proud to announce a new initiative to be launched during the upcoming GLL Gathering on September 10. Led by GLL board member and Patron Vladas Lašas, GLL is kick-starting the EdTech Lithuania Forum in cooperation with Lithuanian start-ups BitDegree (led by Danielius Stasiulis) and Bit&Bite (led by Monika Katkute-Gelzine). The goal of this initiative is to push a breakthrough in the Lithuanian education system with the help of technologies. Inspired by the success of FinTech Lithuania, which brought our country to the #1 position in Europe, the initiative group believes Lithuania can also become a country with the most significant turnaround in Europe in the field of education.

A sophisticated and challenging goal as it is, we will need all the help, competences, and connections from our extensive global network of professionals abroad. 

Can you advise how to create a country open to EdTechs, how to leverage technology and education, and reorganize existing education processes with technology? Do you have extensive knowledge of blended learning? Or maybe you know somebody who does? We would very much appreciate your recommendations! Drop us a line at reserve@lithuanianleaders.org, and we will get in touch with you right away. 

Otherwise, mark September 10 in your calendar as we are compiling the event program and speaker list. According to current quarantine restrictions, there will be opportunities for everybody to join online as well as participate in-person, with priority sports reserved to GLL Supporting Members.  

Faithfully yours, 
 GLL Team
