Technological developments in the field of ICT mean that more and more didactic methods and techniques are becoming available. Until now, education has mainly been classroom oriented. Digiboard and tablets have made their appearance in the classroom, but in their application possibilities, they are still insufficiently integrated in didactic teaching methods.

Flipped learning takes place outside the classroom and makes extensive use of short videos, podcasts and group assignments.

A flipped classroom

There is already a marked shift from supply-driven to demand-driven education. This means that the individual student is offered a tailor-made educational curriculum. Based on the existing competencies at the student and the desired outflow profile, artificial intelligence is used to look at which competencies are still missing and need to be developed. The curriculum does not have to be limited to the classroom. With its digital capabilities, a global interactive classroom is at your fingertips. We call this highly feasible combination of didactic and technological development ‘Learning 5.0’ for convenience. The training is completely demand-driven, individually determined and continuously adaptive.

In our view, we are on ‘Learning 2.0’ with the current didactic methods and experimentation with Learning 3.0. Learners also create content themselves, for example interns also make current learning materials that can be used within education as part of their internship in business. Business and education still have a long challenging path to go to achieve ‘Learning 5.0’. This requires the re-organisation of education. We need to get rid of classroom thinking. Education in the classroom or anywhere else becomes part of a self-learning network, whereby the school institution remains central to the web, responding to the specific needs of the student and the business community. Organizational, didactic and technological developments are similar.
