A paper on ‘Schools of the Future: Defining New Models of Education for the Fourth Industrial Revolution’ has been published by the World Economic Forum (WEF).
The report identifies eight critical characteristics in learning content needed to plan high-quality learning in the Fourth Industrial Revolution – “Education 4.0”. These include developing content on digital skills, covering programming, digital responsibility and the use of technology as well as facilitating personalised learning to suit different needs of each learner.
The paper concludes that while many schools are pioneering change, more collaboration is still needed between education ministries, educators and private sector stakeholders to fully accomplish the new education goals.
