WHY INDUSTRY 4.0 / 5.0?
Industry 4.0 (and 5.0) refers to the rapid evolution in technology integration and change, disrupting industries on a global scale. This includes advances in communication technologies, devices connected to the internet, multiple realities, automation, robotics and data sharing at much quicker pace than at any other time in human history! As a result, we are now living through a fourth industrial revolution, referred to as 'industry 4.0' (i4.0) and on the cusp of 'industry 5.0'.
In the current age, computers, smart devices and self-reporting smart sensors are found in most common household tech devices (such as smartphones ) - with data being constantly shared, stored (through cloud technology) and analyzed, the term 'Big Data' was coined. This has created new economies, evolved our skills and industries around the world to access new insights that have helped to enter the future of work, today - the future is now.
There is no doubt that 'Industry 4.0' naturally demands a future aligned 'Education 4.0' in the modern classroom. It is now. So what exactly is it? Design Thinking X Immersive Learning Technologies.
'Design Thinking' as a key skill set in the heart of every single industry, as the corner stone and catalyst for innovation, critical thinking and leadership in every field. So, how does it integrate with technology? How does this affect the future of education and the classroom today? How does Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Artificial intelligence (AI) and other technological advancements affect the classroom? What about the integration of a growth mindset, creative and critical problem solving? These are the foundational elements given to inspired teachers to learn:
- Creativity + Critical Thinking
- IoT (Internet of Things)
- 12D Building Information Modeling (BIM)
- Big Data Processing
- SMART Devices & sensors
- Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR)
- Artificial Intelligence (AI)
- Automated Production: 3D Printing / Laser Cutting
- Leadership & Innovation
- Education Application
More than ever before, now is the time for teachers to embrace and lead the way to the future of education. It is the time for a creative integration of technology, mindset, soft skills, hard skills and passionate educators to start moulding our students to be future ready.
