EDITORIAL: AIMS AND ENDS IN EDUCATION

EDITORIAL: AIMS AND ENDS IN EDUCATION As technological advancement develops at an exponential rate, we are told that the Western world is entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This encapsulates a shift, it is claimed, from simple digitization of the Third Industrial Revolution to one that embraces innovation and change due to a combination of technologies, including Artifical Intelligence and biotechnological development (Klaus Schwaab, 2015, Chairman of the World Economic Forum). In this new world, according to Schwab, neoliberalism will be dead, new fears will rise, our privacy as individuals will be increasingly under threat, and we will be required to redefine our moral and ethical boundaries. In fact, he believes, we may even have to renegotiate what it means to be human beings. Such claims raise important questions for the future of education. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Knowledge Cultures Addleton Academic Publishers

Abstract

As technological advancement develops at an exponential rate, we are told that the Western world is entering the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This encapsulates a shift, it is claimed, from simple digitization of the Third Industrial Revolution to one that embraces innovation and change due to a combination of technologies, including Artifical Intelligence and biotechnological development (Klaus Schwaab, 2015, Chairman of the World Economic Forum). In this new world, according to Schwab, neoliberalism will be dead, new fears will rise, our privacy as individuals will be increasingly under threat, and we will be required to redefine our moral and ethical boundaries. In fact, he believes, we may even have to renegotiate what it means to be human beings. Such claims raise important questions for the future of education.
