Preparing Students for the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”

By Net Assets posted 7 days ago

  

(From Forbes.com) With the Internet of Things and all things digital, there’s a revolution afoot in the nature of work. Education will have to change to ready students for the “Fourth Industrial Revolution.” Schools will need to do the following:

  • Redefine education’s purpose. Support children to develop the skillset and mindset to do anything in their future rather than a particular “something.”
  • Improve STEM education. But we'll still need employees with critical thinking and collaboration skills, so humanities is just as important.
  • Develop human potential. People are creative and imaginative in ways computers are not.
  • Adapt to lifelong learning models. 85 percent of the jobs in 2030 don’t exist yet; people will need continuing education to engage those opportunities.
  • Train teachers. Teachers should act as guides and help students facilitate their own learning.
  • Make school makerspaces. Foster curiosity, problem-solving skills, inquisitiveness and the iterations of failure.
