Popis Industrial revolutions occur in human history as demonstration of significant changes in a long-term effort to increase production output. These moments meant a dramatic change in production procedures and at the same time required changes in the field of education as a pragmatic activity leading to the preparation of future workers. In the last years, there has been extensive and often emotional discussion about the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0, which can be simply characterized by using information technology and networks to process a large volume of data, which is needed to control the automated production process. The human factor is pushed out of the main concern of the industrial revolution and becomes the service staff of technology. Against this stands the Industry 5.0, which promotes a cooperative approach between man and technology, when the human factor is understood as an important creative element in the production process. It offers greater involvement in production process and a more optimistic outlook for workers, but on the other hand, it further enhances the importance of education as the preparation of future workers for employment in the production process. Vocational education, as part of the educational process significantly focused on the development of professional knowledge and skills with a high potential for use in the practical production process, must respond to the challenges arising from the Industry 5.0. The paper therefore focuses on the identification of requirements affecting the teaching process in vocational education because the Industry 5.0 implementation is supplementing the influence of previous industrial revolutions. It emphasizes not only the importance of the STEM concept for the employability of future workers, but also develops the use of connectivism as an innovative approach using technologies to increase the effectiveness of the teaching process through developing elements of constructivism.
