Study calls for stronger focus on IT and entrepreneurial skills in schools

Study calls for stronger focus on IT and entrepreneurial skills in schools | AllAboutELearning | Scoop.it
European Commission - Press Release - European Commission Press release Brussels, 19 November 2012

 

The teaching of IT, entrepreneurial and citizenship skills is fundamental for preparing young people for today's job market, but, in general, schools are still paying insufficient attention to these transversal skills compared with basic skills in literacy, mathematics and science, according to a new European Commission report. Part of the problem is rooted in difficulties with assessment.

 

===> For example, only 11 European countries (Belgium Flemish community, Bulgaria, Estonia, Ireland, France, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovenia and Finland) have standardised procedures to assess citizenship skills, which aim to develop critical thinking and active participation in school and society. <===

 

Such testing does not exist at all for entrepreneurship and IT skills in any of the 31 countries which took part in the survey (27 EU Member States, Croatia, Iceland, Norway and Turkey). The report also outlines progress in teaching six of the eight key competences defined at EU level for lifelong learning in knowledge, skills and attitudes.

 

“It is only by equipping children and young people with the necessary skills, including transversal skills, that we will ensure that the European Union will have the means to remain competitive and to seize the opportunities of the knowledge economy,” said Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.

 

"This study shows us where there is room for improvement and, most importantly, what we need to do to create more opportunities for our youth.

 

===> Rethinking education, a policy initiative that I will launch tomorrow, will outline concrete proposals for doing this." <===

Brainstorm in Progress: What Part of MOOC Don't You Understand? | AllAboutELearning | Scoop.it

Educators who have not taken a MOOC (Massively Open Online Course) and do not understand their history, are currently writing about these courses which is causing them to be inaccurately represented in the press. The main problem is there is all the publicity around Coursera and Edx that ignores other kinds of MOOCs.

Interesting point. Some MOOCs (us included) already solved some of the problems Couersera and Edx face such as proving college credit for the online college courses.
plerudulier's comment, November 27, 2012 11:40 AM
Proving college credit to enter online college courses as well as accreditation of attended online courses are and will be points to seriously address if MOOCs (whatever their kinds, xMOOCs or cMOOCs) want to 'challenge' traditional formats.

The top 10 free online courses

The top 10 free online courses | AllAboutELearning | Scoop.it
Entrepreneurs are always learning. Whether it’s through reading or watching a mentor work, learning how to do business better is a fundamental part of running a company.

 

So it’s little wonder many courses in the latest trend of free education are aimed squarely at entrepreneurs. While some may still view free, online courses with a sense of derision, the truth is these resources are quality sources of knowledge.

How Adaptive Testing Challenges Learners

How Adaptive Testing Challenges Learners | AllAboutELearning | Scoop.it

Have you wondered what it means when people talk about adaptive testing? This post helps answer this question. After a short introducation on "the Olden Days" of testing (as in paper and pencils) you quickly find out that adpative testing will be coming to us as we move to testing on computers. Specically adaptive testing allows learners to be challenged based on their knowledge. Easier questions happen at the beginning, and based on learners answers the questions will become more difficult if answered correctly, or easier if answered incorrectly. There is a short video that explains this in more detail.

Dana Houston Jackson's curator insight, July 12, 2014 9:00 AM

This is where it can all go so wrong. The second a child encounters a question or statement he does not understand, is the second that needs to be explained/worked with until he does understand. Otherwise you pile confusion upon confusion = pain = don't want to do = upset.

Also, visitors can browse news items by school or by topic area. Finally, the Week's Most Discussed area is a great way to learn about compelling new stories from around the globe."

5 Reasons to Thank a Teacherpreneur

5 Reasons to Thank a Teacherpreneur | AllAboutELearning | Scoop.it

A broader definition comes from the book Teaching 2030; teacherpreneurs are:

 

“…teacher leaders of proven accomplishment who have a deep knowledge of how to teach, a clear understanding of what strategies must be in play to make schools highly successful, and the skills and commitment to spread their expertise to others – all while keeping at least one foot firmly in the classroom.”
