EDUREFORM is a project co-funded by the European Commission. The project aims is to promote creative, critical and analytical thinking in the classrooms through pre-service and in-service teacher training.
The 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) is a fusion of advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, and more. As a result of this technological storm, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is paving the way for transformative changes in the way we live, work and are governed. In 2016, a Citi and Oxford University joint report estimated that 57% of jobs are at risk of automation. Automation and robotics could be an asset for countries with economies characterized with low productive intensity and highly-specialized labour force. Conversely, in a country as India, characterised by high labour density and under skilled labour force, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is likely to generate an earthquake in the labour market. Education and skills development are key factors in the ‘man or machine’ debate. Technological advancements across various industries will lead to a rise in demand for a more skilled workforce. Policymakers will need to reevaluate current education and skilling programmes to prepare workers better.
To prepare the future generation, it is very crucial to develop and design innovative teaching-learning tools, so that individuals will be able to copup with the rapid changes happening in the labour market. This project is a collaborative effort if 11 partners, who are mainly from India and Europe. CXS India is one of the partners in the project.
