Review: Reimagining Digital Learning for Sustainable Development: How Upskilling, Data Analytics, and Educational Technologies Close the Skills Gap
Reimagining digital learning for sustainable development offers a compilation of curated insights from leading experts in the educational sector, as they contemplate how educational systems will have to reinvent themselves to support the achievement of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030. The ambitious SDGs pose multi-sectoral challenges requiring massive upskilling and reskilling of the workforce as it faces the challenges of meeting the job requirements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As they acknowledge that educational systems must prepare learners for multiple career pathways involving jobs that do not yet exist, the authors posit that resourceful and innovative approaches to educational development will be required for meaningful and powerful transformation of educational institutions that, to this day, are constrained by a system created for the First Industrial Revolution. Lifelong learning is brought to the forefront as a model for developing institutional capacity, on the fringes of formal education.
