Thus competencies are needed that are able to offset the presence of these four things in the era of Education 4.0.

  1. Learning Curriculum: the ability to integrate a variety of resources that have to have connectivity in the mastery of technology, communication, and big data to produce 'smart products' and' smart services.
  2. Learning Strategies such as: creation of tools that are able to be used to accurately prove hypotheses that are constructed by science abstractions. innovation is no longer just run on a "single product" to add newness value to the product, but innovation is done on "many products" (multiproduct) to be folded into one product. Collaboration with new designs such as problem-based learning, inquiry-based learning, learning approaches for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM), and various other learning approaches.
  3. Learning Assessment: cognitive, psychomotor, and affective. Based on 4.0, 5.0 (improving the quality of human resources, which can elaborate on science, life skills, and mastery of information technology.)
