The Great Reset – Education & Digital Literacy
As a consequence of the contemporary technological development, the use of digital technologies in education is constantly growing, with governments investing increasing amounts to digitize this field and education leaders finding ways to adapt their institutions to these realities. Schools, high schools and universities need to redesign their specific educational processes to include different approaches to teaching and learning, exploring the predictive value of data, and acquiring technological solutions. This approach not only raises huge practical and, especially, logistical problems, but it also opens up a wide range of opportunities to think about a 21st century education reset. Education must free itself from the old mindsets and meet the so-called 4th Idustrial Revolution requirements so, it must prepare young people for a world governed by scientific and technological progress and encourage them to think critically about how science, technology and innovation provide the necessary opportunities for social progress.
This article has been inspired by the OECD report The Future of Education and Skills 2030, published in 2018, and uses the Great Reset term coined by the World Economic Forum specialists to explore the role of digital technologies in transforming education and more exactly the role of digital education, known as digital literacy, in preparing future generations as true agents of social transformation.
