Co-Founder and Director of Education Fast Forward
Gavin Dykes is Director for the Education World Forum which in January 2019 brought around 95 Ministers and participants from 100 countries together to discuss and share their challenges and opportunities. He is also Programme Director of the Asian Summit on Education and Skills which focuses on developments across Asia and takes place each year in India. He has worked in advisory roles on education, innovation and technology for organizations including the OECD and the World Bank, for governments, corporations and foundations. He sits on the advisory boards of innovative companies including BoClips and University of the People and works with the Institute of Education’s Educate project supporting edtech development. In recent years he has contributed to teaching for the Masters in Educational Entrepreneurship at the University of Pennsylvania. A critical thread throughout Gavin’s work is his belief in the agency of teachers in encouraging change and innovation and in the agency of students in their learning.
