Abstract
Industrial revolution 4.0 is currently a prevalent term. The revolution is initiated by the advancement of technology in many aspects of life. Education is a medium to facilitate the advancement of skills and build strong mental. Suwardana believes that education is the easiest way to shape humans’ appropriate behaviour and prepare humans in dealing with industrial revolution 4.0. Furthermore, it is also necessary to improve personal competence and literacy to be actively involved in the revolution. A keyword to understand and cope with the industrial revolution, literacy is important to be integrated into class activities as early as possible in one’s education. New literacy concepts should be considered an integral part of humans’ development, so they will be more aware of the challenges. This paper explores the new literacy concepts to be emphasized in elementary education name technological literacy and data literacy. In this regards however, this paper also shows that ethnic culture, as a national asset, should be preserved as it can function as a counterweight to the rapid development of the modern era. The existence of the new era should not make people forget about their ethnic culture and national identity.
