1. What is DX Education?
Digital Transformation (DX) and the Society 5.0 is redefining people's life, culture, and tradition that necessitates to be integrated to the classical foundation of formal and non-formal education from primary, secondary, tertiary, and business. Because of DX the digital natives, Generation Z (born in 2010 up) and the upcoming Generation Alpha, naturally acquire skills and knowledge at their own phase and environment privy to others. As a result parents and the older generation with aversion to technology and the lack of time to study to understand the digitization process are often alienated.
Questions naturally arise on ethics and the process of child growth and development under DX that needs to be addressed in order not to hamper the DX education growth especially among children. Moreover, the application of digital transformation in education is widening its gap and barriers between schools, parents and students.
Helping children to be well prepared to live a life in a digital world that never existed before is among the reasons why the Seels DX International School was founded. The pilot school aims to bridge the gap between the following:
a) The new generation's application on the fusion of digitized education and the traditional Science, Technology, Environment, Arts and Math (STEAM) for knowledge and skills for their future life.
b) Sharing of common understanding of children, parents and older generations on DX education and underlying ethics on screen usage.
c) Children, parents and schools togetherness on child's digital growth and development.
