OKAY Smart Education Releases World's First Intelligent Educational Device Ushers in the Era of Demand-Based Learning

BEIJING, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 16, 2017, the "7th World Smart Education Summit Forum" organized by OKAY Smart Education was held at the National Convention Center in Beijing. With the theme of "Revolution", the Forum discussed how education, driven by Internet technology in the artificial intelligence era, could transform from "industrialization era" to "intelligent era", and put forward the concept of "demand-based learning" for the first time.

Throughout the history of human civilization, education reform is inextricably linked to productivity advancement. The current class-based teaching system is the product of the last great educational transformation, when human society entered the industrial age and achieved rapid productivity development. Modern schools introduced industrial flow process and mass production to education by adopting standard and systematic knowledge curriculum, which greatly improved education capacity and therefore realized wider universal education. This transformation replaced old-style private schools in agriculture and handicraft stage, and thoroughly overturned extremely low education capacity and education being a privilege for only a few. Educational transformation in the industrial era promoted a leap in the  development of human society, which led to the glory of the industrial civilization.

Mankind, however, is now moving at an unbelievable pace from the industrial age into the era of intelligent development. The Internet and artificial intelligence technologies are bringing a profound change to all aspects of human society across the world and driving changes. The current generation of teachers is from the post-industrial civilization; the new generation of students is natives of the Internet era. If the new generation of students born with cognitive characteristics of the Internet age is still trapped in the old education system of the industrial age, then what is waiting for us will be stagnation of social progress as we blunder away a historical opportunity of human civilization progress. In light of this, OKAY Smart Education is advocating the concept of "demand-based learning" in the era of the Internet and AI, and believes that education in this new era should use the power of cutting-edge technology to create advancement of intelligence.
