Abstract

As a complement to Industry 4.0, the term Education 4.0 has been defined as the evolution of traditional education considering the new digital age's technological tools, combining real and virtual world information. For emerging economies, the implementation of Education 4.0 is an essential asset for future economic and social development. In this context, the present work describes a set of conceptual Education 4.0 models to support three essential aspects in Latin American economies: entrepreneurship of small and medium enterprises, social welfare, and engineering education.  These models highlight the human efforts and technological features required to adopt Education/Industry 4.0 in these aspects successfully.
