A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | Learning and teaching | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

Hua Hoong Chia's insight:

Is the system expecting more from students than it can itself deliver In Singapore? Good question.

might not be just a Moe/school issue. evolution of society and generation hardiness and aspirations all play a part. At current time, singapore is more susceptible to western influence than Hong Kong and shanghai, and its youth might be more protected than those in Hk and shanghai. Contextual understanding is key to discerning conclusions from data, especially comparative data.
