4th Industrial Revolution: How SA can avoid excluding an entire generation
South Africa risks excluding an entire generation from the Fourth Industrial Revolution given the problem of inequality and unemployment, according to global thought leader on education.
CEO of IDEA Digital Education Dr Corrin Varady believes that government is sitting on a ticking time bomb if it doesn’t empower educators to teach for a digitised future.
He sat down with Azania Mosaka to talk about his concerns and how we can start to model and change what is happening in our classrooms so that South Africa does not miss out.
The biggest part we need to focus on is that South Africa has one of the most progressive African and Middle Eastern African region policies around technology and technology in education.Dr Corrin Varady, CEO - IDEA Digital Education
While there are risks, we also need to be looking at the positive statistics and the emergence of educational technology and training that is coming through for our students.Dr Corrin Varady, CEO - IDEA Digital Education
The Department of Basic Education and all provinces are open to integrating this new technology.
I really think we need to be looking at what is the pathway? What is the map toward launching these young people into an ethnological environment?Dr Corrin Varady, CEO - IDEA Digital Education
