Abstract

Industry 4.0 refers to rapidly evolving technology in a variety of disciplines that aims to improve process efficiency across all the industrial sectors, services, and products, including education. Education 4.0 modifies traditional educational systems to incorporate these new innovations. Education 4.0 is a learning technique associated with the fourth industrial revolution that focuses on transforming education's future through advanced technology and automation. Furthermore, the complexities of Education 4.0 necessitate that all students be equipped with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills in order to solve most interdisciplinary problems. This paper investigates the significance of STEM skills in transforming education systems into Education 4.0 and explores some approaches for aligning teaching and learning methods with these skills to ensure that students are successfully prepared for the fourth industrial revolution.
