Intelitek Releases White Paper on Changing Education Systems to Prepare Students for the Demands of Modern Society and the Industrial Workspace - Tech Learning
“The Education 4.0 Revolution” white paper explains why education systems need to keep pace with major industrial changes and shares principles for transforming learning

DERRY, N.H. – June 6, 2018– Historic changes in industry should and must have a direct impact on the way a society builds its education system. That is the main assertion of a new white paper released by Intelitek. Titled “The Education 4.0 Revolution: An analysis of Industry 4.0 and its effect on education,” the paper explains how and why education paradigms must shift in order to align with future careers and jobs. The paper outlines the Education 4.0 approach of Intelitek, which transforms students from passive recipients of information to active participants in a personal learning process.

According to the white paper, the last 250 years have brought forth four industrial revolutions, each sparked by an innovation: (1) the steam engine; (2) the production line; (3) the computer and (4) the internet. “These revolutions have completely changed not just industries but also societal structures, the nature of work, and the way we see living in modern times,” said Ido Yerushalmi, CEO of Intelitek. “They should have just as significant an impact on education, and yet the pace of change has been much slower in that field.”

As pointed out in “The Education 4.0 Revolution,” pedagogical change has, to an extent, lagged behind the last two revolutions. The paper states, “Internet technology has allowed students to participate in long distance learning and have access to unlimited sources of information. However, since the teaching and learning approach has not changed, and learning outcomes are still being tested according to the criteria defined in the second industrial revolution, the education system does not adequately benefit from computers and the internet and it remains stuck somewhere in the same paradigm of the requirements of the second industrial revolution.”

The paper goes on to describe the four fundamental principles of Intelitek’s particular Education 4.0 instructional approach:

· The learning path is tailor made

· Assessment should be formative

· Teachers need to be mentors

· Divergence and pluralism must be prevalent

“With our Education 4.0 approach, students are always guided by the teacher but construct their knowledge actively rather than just mechanically, ingesting knowledge from the teacher as well as other printed and online resources,” said Yerushalmi. “Our approach is inspired by Industry 4.0 and so we have designed it to give teachers the pedagogic tools and support to bring teaching and learning up to par with the demands of the Industry 4.0 society.”

Lexia Learning Releases White Paper on Using Educational Technology to Foster a Growth Mindset In Students

  BOSTON (April 4, 2017) – The practice of encouraging a growth mindset in students in order to foster their ability to problem solve and take on challenges has gained growing awareness among educators.
