Didactics in the age of education 4.0

The ´future world of work´ is not the future anymore. Digitalization and automation affect our lives in, roughly speaking, all fields. Industry 4.0, welfare 4.0 and commerce 4.0 have prompted education 4.0 and the 21st century skills.

In this context, several recent innovation projects in Denmark have resulted in the new didactic model “ROBOdidactic”. The model promotes teaching that includes digital production, whether the technologies cover programming, robot technologies or, recently, augmented reality. The teaching of technological production is linked to aspects of digital literacy and collaboration with stakeholders in the environment. Playground approaches as well as the learners’ co-design of processes are also crucial elements.

With the learner in the center, the teachers create greater coherence across educational levels, between primary, secondary and higher education. Thus, the teachers cooperate across the levels to transform the ´education chain´ into a ´learning chain´. The presentation will offer practical and theoretical insight into the model “ROBOdidactic”. Selected elements are illustrated by two vocational highschool teachers, with examples from their teaching practice in different advanced technologies across the ´education chain´.
