Changes in Technology are not happening in isolation

It is now largely understood that the world cannot afford to keep Education, Employment, and Empowerment of ever rising youth population into different watertight compartments. They are highly and synergistically related to each other. They reinforce as well as depend on each other. Today we are on the verge of Fourth Industrial Revolution and profound technological changes are knocking at the door. These changes have already started shaping the spheres of education, employment, and citizenship in the economy, affecting the lives of millions. Pressing problems of society, economy, and individuals are in want of smart systems and solutions—right from home to factory, farm, cities, and interpersonal accord. There is a phenomenal rise in shared economy and realization of ‘shared value’. It is unlikely that the patters of consumption, production, and employment will not see a major shift. It is also unlikely that these big changes will not come with challenges for individuals, institutions, industry, and government. Changes in technology is not happening in isolation. There is a concurrent structural changes taking shape in socio-economic, geopolitical, demographic, and political landscape. All these drivers of change are interacting in multiple directions and reinforcing each other. It is rather critical that businesses take proactive role in training and re-training of current workforce and join hands with academics. It is equally important that academics make paradigm shift in educational system and delivery in order to cater to the needs of business and economy. Government needs to come forward and create enabling environment and forge partnership. This poses a big question of how the alignment of education, employment, and empowerment of young population should take place. How educational institutions, industries, and government should react and prepare for these changes.
