This report examines the steps needed to shift learning content and experience towards the skills that will be needed and describes many promising models of quality education for the Fourth Industrial Revolution -“Education 4.0”.

In the context of job disruption, demand for new skills and increased socioeconomic polarization, primary and secondary school systems have a critical role to play in preparing the global citizens and workforces of the future. Education models must adapt to equip children with the skills to create a more inclusive, cohesive and productive world.

A report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) has warned: "Education systems have grown increasingly disconnected from the realities and needs of global economies and societies. Education models must adapt to equip children with the skills to create a more inclusive, cohesive and productive world."
