This past year Labtech participated in 15 Events that were held all over the globe in both speaking and showcasing our training systems. This year we often spoke about Industry 4.0 in terms of how to prepare for the future skills that will be required. We also spoke about the downside of IR4.0 in that changes will happen to industry and that present jobs will be lost, and it will fall to TVET to retrain and reskill these people. This will hit many developing countries quite hard with a number of low and medium labor activities being replaced which will result in their jobs or industries being shifted elsewhere. But there is hope that the rising economies driven by new technologies will continue to uplift people worldwide if we are proactive in training them for the required skills.
Labtech also engaged with senior educators around the globe about how TVET can be transformed by using new digital technologies to virtualize certain aspects of training. Labtech has a major ongoing program to develop a new generation of 3D digital learning resources which can be deployed in several ways ranging from tablets, to laptops, to PCs as well as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality systems. We have been developing new educational development strategies that can reduce the cost of developing new TVET programs in half compared to traditional methods. In the coming years we shall see these new systems start to be deployed and this can change the face as well as the cost of education globally. (more…)Read More
