Unicist Functionalist Education


Unicist Reflection-Driven Education in the 4IR

Supported by Teaching Cobots

For Functionalist Technologies Transfer & Educational Programs

Functionalist education became necessary due to the 4th Industrial Revolution that is introducing a new stage in the social world that deals with the empowerment of adaptability, which requires managing the functionalist principles to deal with the functionality of social, economic, business, and personal environments.

Functionalist business education is a superior education model for professionals who decided to go beyond the operational approach to businesses and manage their functionality.

Teaching cobots (collaborative robots) were developed to simplify graduate educational processes allowing professors to focus on the learning processes of the participants.

Learning to manage the functionality of business processes requires the use of an action-reflection-action process and learning-by-teaching activities.

Here you can experience the functionality of a teaching cobot to transfer the basics of the technologies used in functionalist education and integrate them with the benchmarks that are presented. Consider that the participants of this activity were exposed to the solution to a real problem and had access to the documents of the technology before the activity began.

Unicist business education is based on learning processes that are essentially analogous to “teaching hospitals” based on real problem-solving in adaptive environments but managing the functionalist principles to deal with the root causes of problems.

Example:
Selling Argument Building Program

The building of selling arguments requires managing the functionality of buying and selling processes. Here you can experience the functionality of a teaching cobot to transfer the basics of the technologies used to build selling arguments. The activity’s objective is that the participants have the guiding idea of how the selling argument will be built by integrating functionalist technologies with the presented benchmarks.

Unicist Reflection Driven Education in the 4IR

The unicist education model is based on five pillars:

1. A learning context is required before a learning process begins. Learning processes in adults require the existence of a real problem to be solved.

2. An adaptive learning contract that defines the guiding idea of the learning process and the conditions of the teaching and learning activities.

3. The development of business residencies, which are homologous to medical residencies, where the unicist reflection methodology is used to develop solutions.

4. The use of learning objects that allow managing the personalized learning program of participants.

5. The professor’s role is focused on ensuring the development of solutions while driving learning activities.

6. This model became possible due to the discovery of the functionalist principles that define the functionality of things and the corresponding synchronized binary actions that make them work.
