ED Toolbox development

New content is added regularly to the ED Toolbox Library, through a program of Themes that change every two months.

World Economic Forum (WEF) data 

The ED Toolbox now includes an embedded Strategic Intelligence  (AI) widget developed by the World Economic Forum. The widget captures and presents contact from the internet focused on programmable themes. The widget is being used in the Challenges section to capture content for each of the industry sectors, and in the Library for categories in Innovation, Future of Work and Sustainability.

Clicking on the widget will transport you to the Strategic Intelligence website and allow you to explore topics and monitor the issues and forces driving transformational change across economies, industries and systems.
