Education 4.0: a view from different digital proposals


This book is, then, a way to expose some research projects undertaken at the EAFIT University, in agreement with several technological companies, that develop three perspectives about education in a digital context, in which the informatic mediation and the use of technologies 4.0 lead the revision of the teaching and learning processes through a novel perspective. Together, this book presents how 4.0 technologies enable a highly participatory and dialogic education, where students of different levels have the possibility of learning and training in their discipline while developing soft skills and, at the same time, the teachers can follow the development and evolution of these capacities and the purposes expected in the courses. Given the variety of courses modalities that are currently offered (e-learning, b-learning, m-learning, u-learning, among others), the applications presented in each chapter, as well as the appropriation of technologies for the enrichment of the students’ cognitive and social skills, are an opportunity to explore new perspectives and approaches to Education 4.0
