Abstract:The forth industrial revolution is changing the way that all businesses, governments, and consumers interact with the physical world and the production system. This new revolution brings new paradigms that is breaking the way men work, and, consequently, changes in their training will also be necessary due to differences in knowledge and skills needed to meet new job demands. A fundamental characteristic of this new mode of production is multidisciplinary teams with a high level of technical knowledge and the ability to face several aspects of the production system, from production line up to customer interaction and integration with business and corporative systems. Besides, due to the velocity of transformations, the new employees must be able to learn and change quickly. Furthermore, such workers must develop intrinsically human characteristics like empathy, personal relationship and technical skills that machines won’t be able to do, since all other activities would be done by machines with artificial intelligence and advanced robotics. This paper proposes the use of pedagogical robotics in order to develop multidisciplinary ability and development of interpersonal relationships, creativity and critical thinking to the future employees. It is discussed active learning methodology and the features of educational robotics that could be applied in order to develop the abilities to attend these new job demands.
Keywords: Industry 4.0, active learning, pedagogical robotics.
