Education Technology Promotes Skills for the Future
Educators and administrators are adapting to a world where students learn in different environments, in different ways. New tools and techniques create immersive learning environments that nurture the mindsets and skill sets students need for jobs in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Building Skills for Innovation
Education technology (EdTech) is a powerful tool to connect students with learning opportunities. At Intel, we see the potential for using technology in the classroom to help students learn the skills necessary for the Fourth Industrial Revolution job market.
The Intel® Skills for Innovation (Intel® SFI) framework envisions a world in which students learn the skills necessary to traverse the shifting landscape of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Here, they are empowered to be innovators as they prepare for, imagine, and create the jobs of the future.
To help bring this vision to reality, Intel will work with education leaders across the globe. We’ll help ensure teachers and students have access to the technologies and tools they need to meet the challenges of a changing world:
• Empower students to become the innovators of tomorrow: Educators can integrate technology into their programs and lesson plans to build the skills of the future and help students develop cognitive, technical, and social-emotional skills. The right technology tools let students practice skill-building activities anytime, anywhere. These tools help students analyze, evaluate, and create using information as they learn, develop advanced skills, and prepare for the jobs of the future.
• Enable educators to integrate technology, skill building, and higher-order thinking in their teaching: The Intel® Skills for Innovation (Intel® SFI) framework helps educators integrate technology to embrace new ways of teaching from any location and to adapt instructional technology to meet future needs. Reliable, high-performance technology tools give educators peace of mind, so they can focus on their students rather than worrying about technology.
• Establish learning environments for the future of work: Models for adopting and integrating technology help create physical and virtual spaces that empower students to reach their full potential, master future-ready skills, and be ready for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
