In the era of industrial revolution 4.0, people are facing digitalized social life and work. People need to know and master digital technologies and information that allow them to learn and work at the same time. Virtual classrooms, libraries, and workspaces are available throughout the internet. Without the capacities to use them, these facilities instead will become barriers for people to reach success.
Literacy and education hold the keys for people to reach success. These keys can help the students to learn hard skills and soft skills such as communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.
