Catalysing Education 4.0: Investing in the Future of Learning for a Human-Centric Recovery

There is a unique window of opportunity to invest in Education 4.0: an approach to reimagining education in a way that is inclusive, focuses on a broad range of skills to prepare learners for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and leverages technological and pedagogical innovation to put learners at the centre of learning. Global inequities in childhood education—compounded by a COVID-19 pandemic that has shuttered schools for an estimated 1.6 billion children, as well as rapid technological change that is sure to transform the nature of work for the next generation—further underline the need to push learning beyond the pre-pandemic "business as usual".
