Paul Herring's curator insight, Today, 12:53 AM

""The imperative for introducing these foundational skills into the primary and pre-primary curricula should be unassailable," she said, explaining that she was including in this call associated skills such as computer coding, computational thinking, problem solving and design thinking.... Business is getting behind the call. Last week BHP Billiton announced it would put $22 million into a program to boost the maths performance of girls in schools. Much of the program is aimed at lifting the skills of maths teachers, which will benefit all students, not just girls.

Why is this important?
It's because 40 per cent of those teaching maths in years 7 to 10 of high school are not formally qualified to teach the subject."

I've plainly never heard of these Russian/Soviet movies, I think they might be worth seeing. Interesting how the narrative once established barely wavers. I wonder if we could ever have a Canadian narrative for the Second World War?

New Vision for Education - Unlocking the Potential of Technology

New Vision for Education - Unlocking the Potential of Technology | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it

“ To thrive in a rapidly evolving, technology-mediated world, students must not only possess strong skills in areas such as language arts, mathematics and science, but they must also be adept at skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, persistence, collaboration and curiosity. All too often, however, students in many countries are not attaining these skills. In this context, the World Economic Forum has taken on a multi-year initiative, New Vision for Education, to examine the pressing issue of skills gaps and explore ways to address these gaps through technology. In this report, we undertook a detailed analysis of the research literature to define what we consider to be the 16 most critical “21st-century skills”. Our study of nearly 100 countries reveals large gaps in selected indicators for many of these skills – between developed and developing countries, among countries in the same income group and within countries for different skill types. These gaps are clear signs that too many students are not getting the education they need to prosper in the 21st century and countries are not finding enough of the skilled workers they need to compete.”
