Coming of Age in the 4th Industrial Age:
The video of my TEDx talk gives a very brief outline of concerns related to the 4th Ibdustrial Age: My TEDx talk on Education in the 4th Industrial Age
This program ‘ Coming of Age in the 4th Industrial Age’ is directed at the young ( both boys and girls) who are coming of age (turning 18) in the years to come. We are aiming at the age group of 18+-2, that is from 16 years to 20 years.
This is about the same age group that pursues the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, The A levels and the Senior Secondary stage of the CBSE and other State Boards. Younger persons may not be able to benefit from the program, although students in post secondary courses ( general BA, BSc, BCom or Professional courses such as Engineering, Medicine or Law) would find this program helpful in preparing them for their future.
There is really no upper age limit for an enquiringly mind with the disposition of a life-long learner.
About the 4th Industrial Age:
It was at the World Economic Forum 2016 at Davos, that the phrase 4th Industrial Revolution was proposed by Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum in his book ‘ The fourth Industrial Revolution’ launched at the Davos 2016 drew attention to the possibility that we have just transcended the 3rd Industrial Revolution into the beginnings of the fourth Industrial Revolution.
