Specifically, the skills TS1 ("I am familiar with online learning tools used in my school"), OCL1 ("I learn online collaboratively with my classmates"), and TSE1 ("I have confidence in my skills using technology") were identified as of very high importance for the requirements of Education 4.0 among UAE high school students. Regarding the ranking of innovative learning skill groups, the study unveiled that the Self-regulated learning (SRL) group attained the highest rank, boasting a mean score of 4.272. Following closely, the Technology Self-Efficacy (TSE) group secured a mean score of 4.248. In contrast, the Critical thinking skills (CTS) group ranked the lowest, garnering a mean score of 4.128.
