EDU 4.0, are we ready? With the evolution of Web 1.0 to Web 3.0 and moving forward to Web 4.0.

As new technology progress, we cannot deny our learner’s preferences, and perhaps we need to go back to basic by reflecting on the questions at the micro level:
1. Can our learners cope with the ‘new’ learning strategies?
2. How do educators ‘survive’ in the new ‘learning environment’ concerning formulating the new instructional strategy?
