Picture by Welcome to all, and thank you for your trip! “New technologies and approaches are merging the physical, digital, and biological worlds in a way that will fundamentally transform humankind. The point to which that transformation is favorable depends on how we browse opportunities and the risks that arise along the way. The changes are so deep that, from the perspective of human history, there’s never been a time of greater assurance or potential hazard” – Klaus Schwab, (founder of the World Economic Forum), The Fourth Industrial Revolution
“The potential of Education 4.0 is enormous – the UK has to take the lead, now.” – Paul Feldman (Jisc CEO) The potential of Education 4.0 is enormous – and the UK has to take the lead, now
Digital is core to the UK’s higher education sector, creating efficiencies throughout all aspects of the student experience and improving and supporting staff. The united kingdom education sector needs to change to fit the demands of Industry 4.0 and pupil expectations. Fact and intelligence will play a vital role in retraining, successfully upskilling, and assessing our workforce to make sure nobody is left behind.
The area of Industry 4.0 is one of the high-tech skills such as analysts, AI wranglers, problem solvers, and creatives, but also a world of ability, such as artisans, carers, and robot carers and maintainers. The fact will play a part in reskilling and teaching the pros of the future, while assessments could be carried out by robots.
Picture by Michael Gaida from order so they can build the infrastructure to match and achieve that vision, universities and schools will need to begin laying the foundations now, the engineering and the culture required for whatever the future will bring.
One core aspect underpinning the vision of Education 4.0 will be information, analytics, and information literacy. Technologies will be determined by a variety of datasets that have been gathered right but additionally. Without a base of data, a single set of fact, it will be challenging to take advantage of the possibilities that analysis
Analytics and prediction will rely on functioning algorithms that need to be designed and created in a manner that removes the bias and can inform us of a true story that will enable data-informed decisions, which will improve the student experience and improve the effective and efficient utilization of resources and spaces.
We all know we can gather a selection of information about people, but it doesn’t mean we should, just because we can. There are numerous ethical, as well as legal, issues in the collection of information about how people are currently engaging with college or a university, including location and utilization, but also academic information of resource information as well.
We shouldn’t forget the human element of analytics and information. It’s not sufficient to deliver predictions, accurate analysis, and visualizations. Students in universities and schools and staff will need to be information literate to enable them to understand and act on that information. Adequate and appropriate interventions will only be possible when students and staff can understand what’s being introduced to them and understand what and how they can act consequently.
The near future is an unknown, but universities and schools can begin to prepare for whatever is coming. They can lay the foundations for your future, and also, a significant base is that of information, the usage of information wrapped in a blanket.
The Data Matters 2020 conference will bring together specialists from throughout the sector to talk about and debate the critical info and analytics challenges in building the future vision of Education 4.0. We will go over the significance of laying the foundations for that vision, the possible future, we will think about what we will need to do to begin that journey.
We will consider the ethical implications as well as we can provide other digital skills and information literacy for your staff and students to take advantage of the possibilities that information can bring.
This unique conference brings together three industry agencies, Jisc, HESA, and QAA, who’ll be working together with colleagues from universities and schools to collaborate and discuss their vision, ideas, and solutions for the information enabled prospective of Education 4.0.

Data does issue, and also at Data Matters 2020, we will be helping universities and schools for your future.
