The Council is expected to adopt the report by the end of the year. The report also proposes to set the new priorities for 5 years, replacing previous 3 year cycles, to enable a longer-term impact. The six new priorities proposed by the Commission are:
Relevant and high-quality skills and competences, focusing on results, for employability, innovation and active citizenship; Inclusive education, equality, non-discrimination and promotion of civic competences; Open and innovative education and training, including by fully embracing the digital era; Strong support for educators; Transparency and recognition of skills and qualifications to facilitate learning and labour mobility; and Sustainable investment, performance and efficiency of education and training systems.

So many teachers want the quick strategies they can use the very next day. Unfortunately, many of those are just more of the same. Sometimes what makes a strategy work (or not work) is HOW the teacher “sets up” the activity. Other times it works because of the timing or the environmental factors.
In short, it not about just the strategy. But for a moment, let’s say, you’ve already taken one of my amazing multi-day brain-based courses. The following might be good for a quick reminder:
1. The saying “too much, too fast,” means we won’t integrate and recall the information if you teach is quickly. Instead, chunk down the learning into small chunks; allow processing and settling time with partners or as reflective journal time.
2. Because every brain is different—genes + experience, plus the interplay between the two, recall the importance of honoring uniqueness, respecting differences. That means use huge variety to maximize learning. Use visual, with illustrations, and podcasts and DVDs. Then use movement with drama, hands on and energizers. Also use plenty of call-response with partner dialogs.
3. Most subjects can be learned under moderate stress; think of it as “healthy concern.” To ramp that up, use constant accountability. After every learning chunk, have kids create a quiz question, stand up, quiz their neighbor or create a short quiz of 10 questions. Use teams, peer pressure and deadlines to add concern. Remember the material better with an emotion embedded with it. After the quiz, celebrate the progress.
4. Thinking about thinking builds learning skills as active processing time. Add the process of journaling, discussion and learning logs valuable for better learning. Give students starter sentences such as “What I was curious (or stressed over) about today was”… Or, “What I learned today was… and, the way I learned it best was when I.” Until patterns emerge, learning is often random and messy, following no clear path over time, the patterns become more obvious. Pattern making is more complex in second languages like math and music.
5. Remember the value in non-learning or “settling” time, to consolidate the content. Take breaks, recess, lunch, relax time, walks, for passive processing. Even a quick energizer that’s fun and playful can be a good break.
6. Our brain can memorize, but our best learning is the trial & error learning; it’s a key to complex learning–there’s value in games done well, so use games, computers, competition, building, initiatives, etc. Games like hopscotch, relays, or just let kids quiz each other. Brains rarely get it right the first time—learning complexity is built over time Using checklists, peer teaching, computers, asking Qs, are all examples of using trial and error.
I give many a chemical rush when they answer my call, 8-10 Americans believe I am addictive, and I can kill you if I'm misused. What am I? A cellphone, of course! Thanks to cellphones, we are more connected than ever before, but disconnecting is also more painful.
Une des difficultés pour apprendre une langue étrangère c’est de la pratiquer couramment pour gagner en fluidité, parler avec naturel. Le web et les outils en ligne ont changé la donne en permettant de s’entrainer à tout moment de la journée, chez soi ou en déplacement, le jour comme la nuit.
Pour pratiquer une langue avec des natifs d’un pays il y a aussi les réseaux sociaux. En voici trois. Trois réseaux sociaux dédiés à l’apprentissage et à la pratique d’une langue étrangère. Tous les trois permettent de s’inscrire gratuitement et de créer des groupes pour des échanges.
For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.
Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.
“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.
“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”
Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.
More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.
Il existe des tonnes de façons de faciliter l’apprentissage des élèves. Si, traditionnellement, la lecture de manuels constituait la méthode de base pour s’approprier l’information, les nouvelles technologies permettent maintenant de rendre les contenus plus séduisants, certes, mais surtout plus faciles à assimiler et à retenir. Dans ce contexte, l’infographie éducative semble une solution à ne pas négliger en classe!
"To understand the extent to which the skills taught in education systems around the world are changing, and whether they meet the needs of employers and society more widely, Google commissioned research from The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). The EIU surveyed senior business executives, teachers and students."
