The 4th International Conference on Innovative Education and Technology (ICIET 2019) that is organized by RMUTT at 11-13 July 2019 at Aiyara Grand Hotel Pattaya Chonburi, Thailand with the theme is Innovative Education and Technology. Dr Steven McKee was being a keynote speaker that presented about “The Challenges of Industry 4.0 and How New Technologies will Impact TVET (Virtual TVET: 3D Simulation, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality)”.
The Future of work and jobs are changing fast as industry deploys more sophisticated manufacturing technology. We shall explore the ways that TVET can respond to these challenges. How we can infuse technology to learning process and make it more relevant and to achieve better training results at substantially lower costs. Virtual TVET digital learning technologies are being developed with 3D animated simulations, VR and AR applications which can increase student understanding and build practical skills. This can change the way that skills training laboratories/workshops are set up requiring less physical equipment and less cost. Virtual TVET will deepen student learning and allow us to individualize student learning pathways and tailor learning to each students’ own preferences and needs. This new style goes beyond “Blended Learning” to be what is now being termed “Braided Learning” and opens possibilities to change when, where and how we learn Skills.
