Learning beyond Fifteen - OECD Publication

Learning beyond Fifteen - OECD Publication | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

This report focuses on the development of reading proficiency during the transition from adolescence to early adulthood. The span of time between the ages of 15 and 24 is a critical period of development for young people. Once compulsory education is completed, individual decisions about post-secondary education, employment and other life choices have to be made with major consequences for future learning and employment outcomes. A good foundation in reading proficiency facilitates success in specialised education during higher education or during job-related training. Since reading proficiency is not the goal of such specialised or professional learning, reading skills may begin to atrophy. So both learning gains and losses need to be considered as human capital is developed.

Seeking reflections on parenting, by parents of young adults | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

On behalf of Lizzy Chase I'm forwarding the following message:
Dear friends

I am seeking contributions for a book of parenting reflections, written by
parents of young adults. The deadline is mid-March 2012 and the word length is
1000-2000 words. If you are interested, please email me at lizziechase@hotmail.com to receive
the writing brief and some pieces which have already been contributed. I intend
the book to be published as a free online downloadable ebook, in a PDF format.

I am asking you to forward this email to any friend you have who may be
interested - who is a parent of a young adult. Contributions can be ANONYMOUS -
please indicate that you have changed names, by placing an ASTERISK next to the
title of your piece.

Thanks so much for passing this on to interested people!

My previous ebook is published at http://otherworlds.yolasite.com

Cheers

Lizzie
