May the Fourth Be with You: Creating Education 4.0
Salmon, Gilly
Journal of Learning for Development, v6 n2 p95-115 2019
The paper looks back across dominant ways of delivering Higher Education until the present day and then looks forward. There is an approximate continuum described from Education 1.0 through 2.0 to 3.0. Education is mapped onto the emergence and development of the Web and the revolutions known as 'Industrial' over the last 250 years. Then some foresight is deployed with the particular lens of graduates' employment prospects and contributions to the future -- dubbed 'Education 4.0'. The paper hopes to stimulate dialogue and promote preparedness and innovation for more changes arriving fast over Higher Education's wider horizons.
