The appearance of ICT in the 80’s has transformed industries operations as well as their workspaces to improve productivity and performances (McCain, Jukes, & Crockett, 2010; Lorenz, Rüßmann, Strack, Lasse Lueth, & Bolle, 2015). The evolution of Digital Hardware, Digital Network, Digital Information and Digital Collaboration, which is the new engine of the global economy, companies are continuously upgrading their ICT equipment to maintain or increase performance. This new technological wave demands new skills in the work place, namely, problem solving, team work, communication, critical thinking and creativity which seem to be the top five competencies (Sproat, 2015). Facing increasing demand from the digital industry, the school system has been suffering to prepare student for the digital society. The education system needs to have a complete face lift. Therefore, we have identified Three Educational Forces that could transform the learning culture to prepare students for the digital society.
