Theophilus's curator insight, July 29, 1:18 PM

Abraham Tumuti's scoop of this article from Kenya bring an encouraging caution from Simon Mwiti, the chairman of Kenya Primary Head Teachers Association.


Simon addresses a difficulty felt in more education systems in the world than governments are prepared to admit.


"Teaching first and ... (then) ... testing the understanding of learners", as he puts it, shows that Mwiti is not against testing. He is simply asking for the results of the test to modify the way you teach and what you teach instead of it simply providing a set of indicators for purposes other than fostering true learning.

Ebola outbreak in Africa has minimal impact so far on educational exchanges @insidehighered | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

Alarm over the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa has spread -- as has the virus, which has killed nearly 700 people in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.

And few students from the region enroll at American colleges and universities.
