  • They will discuss what is the role of philanthropy in solving some of Brazil’s greatest social challenges;
  • And talk about the role of technology in ensuring quality education, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Brazil at Silicon Valley (BSV), the conference designed by Brazilian students from Stanford and Berkeley universities which migrated to a digital format because of the COVID-19 pandemic, will broadcast the second panel of the event this Wednesday, at 12 p.m. EST (1 p.m BRT). In it Jorge Paulo Lemann, the businessman and chairman of the Lemann Foundation board, and Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, will talk about the role of technology in ensuring quality education, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, which increased the complexity of educational challenges.

They will also discuss what is the role of philanthropy in solving some of Brazil’s greatest social challenges, and will share experiences from their own institutions, Fundação Lemann e Khan Academy.

The videoconference will be broadcasted on BSV’s YouTube channel and it will be open to the general public. According to BSV, the debate on edtechs is essential amid the pandemic, mainly because Brazilians are not used to study in this kind of remote model.

Last week, the BSV’s first panel discussed the new economy and the future of the Brazilian unicorns with the CEOs and founders of Gympass, Nubank, iFood, Wildlife, and Stone. The panel reached 13,500 people on the BSV Digital channel, and 4,500 people on the BTG Pactual channel, totaling 18,000 views.
