Abstract

The challenges of innovating teaching and learning to meet the current demands of 21st-century lifelong learning is the ultimate goal of Education 4.0. Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR) being characterized as the era of massive development of smart machines, the enormous convergence of information technology, and remarkable platforms for communication and collaboration, becomes one of the significant drivers of Education 4.0. IR 4.0 brings education to raising the bar. Hence, Education 4.0 becomes mandatory to be implemented and integrated into the curriculum. The successful implementation of this integration rests upon the hands of the teachers being considered as the curriculum implementers. Hence, this study aims to explore the understanding of the teachers on education 4.0 and their practices in terms of integrating the concept with the senior high school ABM curriculum. Using a case study, the research was conducted among eight participants in a multi-level private school in the southern part of Manila and found out that the teacher’s understanding of education 4.0 was based on two major concepts which include; (a) integration of technology into teaching through blended learning, and (b) preparing students to become lifelong learners through integrating transversal competencies and 21st-century learning skills in the curriculum. With the teachers’ use of the learning management system, blended learning which integrates the transversal competencies in the curriculum and the development of 21st-century skills became possible. The practices of the teachers in integrating technology through blended learning in teaching, ensuring the development of the 21st-century skills, and transversal competencies to ensure the implementation of teaching and learning within the concept of education 4.0 are discussed in detail.
