Learning for Sustainable Development in the Fourth Industrial Revolution
There is a growing sense of urgency to adopt Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies , such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, the Internet of T hings (IoT), a nd data analytics in education. Yet there appears to be no clear direction on what technologies should be adopted, how they should be i ntegrated, or what effect their inclusion may have on the field of education or on learners. A research project exploring various 4IR technologies , and the benefits and challenges of employing these technologies for global sustainable development and education is underway. As part of the project, this paper presents initial findings from a thematic review of 28 academic peer - reviewed journal articles from 2017 to 2019 on the use of 4IR technologies for attaining the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Developm ent Goals (SDGs) and in education around the world . Findings include e xamples on the beneficial use s and implementation challenges of 4IR technologies for sustai nable development and education. The aim is to develop an informed, collective understanding of the benefits, challenges, and other issues arising from adoption of 4IR technologies for achieving the SDGs, especially in relation to education. Recommendations for future projects and research initiatives are also considered. // Paper ID 92
