FutureEduX is an innovative approach and a collaborative platform to transform the education sector to meet the evolving demands of the Industry 4.0 and the forthcoming Industry 5.0 in this 21st century. The aim is to create a new educational ecosystem that develops and co-creates best practices by incorporating technology, personalized learning, and collaboration to create a more engaging and effective knowledge sharing and learning experience for students, faculty members, education related policy makers in the government, industry leaders, edupreneurs/EdTech startups and aspiring experts in the broad education sector.
With the radical developments of technology and their power to disrupt, traditional education systems have become somewhat outdated, and they are not fully capable of meeting the needs of the future. The focus so far has been on standardized testing and memorization, leaving little room for creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving skills and future readiness. This approach does not adequately prepare students for the demands of the 21st century.
