Workshop focuses on fourth tech revolution

An international interactive workshop on technology will be held on 12 March.

SMART Schools, SMART Universities and SMART Cities (Communities): Meeting the Fourth Technology Revolution (Wave) is the theme for the day long workshop.

Certain South African schools, universities and cities (Communities) are still being caught up in the elements of the First, Second and Third Revolutions. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is demanding that schools, universities and cities (Communities) must put emphasis on the application of technology to become future-ready.

“Peter Drucker in 1998 already, predicted that 30 years from now the big university campuses will be relics. Universities won’t survive. Vice-chancellors, education managers, school principals, educators and town planners must ask the following critical question: What strategies do we have in place to be classified as technology-SMART and future-ready,” according to a facilitator of the interactive workshop, Prof Chris Jacobs, who is also the founder and CEO of Higher Learning Africa (HLA).

“Learners and students that are being categorised as millennials, and representing generation Z, are presenting new challenges to curricula, teaching methods and learning approaches. A recent incident over a cellphone in a classroom at a leading secondary school in Cape Town, could have been avoided in a SMART School environment.

“Efficient application of policies regarding technology and the training of educators and learners must be ‘SMART’,” says Jacobs.

He returned to South Africa after 12 years in West Africa as a Vice-Chancellor and Director of Studies of one of the largest private educational groups in West Africa.

The workshop will be presented in the Conference Room of Stellenbosch Library in Bird Street from 09:00 to 14:00. For more info, contact Jacobs on profcd@webmail.co.za.
