Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the level of science teacher's knowledge, understanding and readiness in dealing with the education transformation in the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR). This study was conducted on 151 secondary school science teachers. Data were analysed by descriptive (mean, percentage & standard deviation) and inference (MANOVA & Pearson Correlation) analysis using Statistical Package for Social Sciences. Descriptive findings indicated that the level of teacher's knowledge, understanding and readiness in dealing with 4IR is at a moderate level. MANOVA analysis found no significant differences in teacher's knowledge, understanding and readiness in terms of gender and teaching experience. Pearson Correlation also found that there was no significant relationship between teaching experience and gender on their level of knowledge, understanding and readiness in dealing with the 4IR. In conclusion, this study proposes that exposures to the 4IR should be made more widely available to ensure that every teacher is able to cope with this increasingly challenging educational transformation.
