Pisa tests : nu ook  'global skills'  en 'cultural awareness'= geogrfie

Pisa tests : nu ook  'global skills'  en 'cultural awareness'= geogrfie | aardrijkskunde | Scoop.it

"Pisa tests, an international standard for comparing education systems around the world, could include a new measurement of global skills in the next round of tests in 2018. The OECD, which runs the tests in maths, reading and science, is considering adding another test which would look at how well pupils can navigate an increasingly diverse world, with an awareness of different cultures and beliefs. The OECD's education director Andreas Schleicher explains why there is such a need for new rankings to show young people's competence in a world where globalisation is a powerful economic, political and cultural force.

Education leaders around the world are increasingly talking about the need to teach 'global competences' as a way of addressing the challenges of globalisation."

They define global competence as: "the capacity to analyse global and intercultural issues critically and from multiple perspectives, to understand how differences affect perceptions, judgements, and ideas of self and others, and to engage in open, appropriate and effective interactions with others from different backgrounds on the basis of a shared respect for human dignity".

 

So I guess geography does matter then.  Who knew?

Kansainvälistyminen nousee uudeksi mitattavaksi asiaksi PISA-tutkimuksissa 2018. Miten mahtaa suomalaisten peruskoulujen käydä? Pystyvätkö ne globaalitaidoissa ja kulttuurienvälisessa osaamisessa yltämään samalle tasolle kuin kansainvälistymisessä pitkälle edistyneet Britannia, Hollanti, Belgia tai Tanska. Oma kokemukseni jo 10 vuotta jatkuneesta Intia-yhteistyöstä (http://www.eumind.net) ei ennakoi Suomen kouluille huipputuloksia. Mutta toivotaan parasta.

"The study of geography is about more than just memorizing places on a map. It's about understanding the complexity of our world, appreciating the diversity of cultures that exists across continents. And in the end, it's about using all that knowledge to help bridge divides and bring people together."   

 

-President Barack Obama

Thanks to the NCGE for reminding me of this great quote.  In 2012 President Obama participated in National Geographic Bee to to "celebrate the important role that geography plays in all our lives."  If you want the video of President Obama saying this quote, click here.

Van een Tweet van Earth Pics, al 1000 keer doorgestuurd in het eerste uur. Klopt dit? Stel geografische relevante vragen en zoek naar ander bewijsmateriaal voordat je online bronnen als 'waar' benoemd. Ja het 'eiland' bestaat. Dit zou In Ierland moeten zijn? Klimaat en planten! Nee dus.....maar waar dan wel? Ken je meer voorbeelden?

students need to be very careful in the type of sources that they used to glean information. People can manipulate photos and suggest things as fact when they are completetly made up. It is understandable that Wikipedia can not be used as an entireyl reliable source because people have access to add whatever they want to the content matter. Photoshop and other online tools can be used to trick people into beleiving certain things. This photo claiming to be from ireland is really from Thailand is a small island but the castle itself on the top os photoshoped and the image was retweeded like crazy within the first hor. wee must check our sources and make sure that we are getting good primary or at least good secondary services from legit websites.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, April 23, 2014 5:08 PM

This just shows that you can't believe everything you see on the internet. In this picture it is said to be of an island in Ireland but in reality it is in Thailand. People believe what they want to believe.

Before reading this article, I assumed that I was capable of telling fictional from factual information apart. But now, after having my eyes opened, I realize that the internet can truly play you like a puppet. From this article, I've now learned that there are more ways than one to judge the authenticity of a site. one such way is to search for an "original" copy of whatever it may be that you're researching. If none pop up, you have the true article.

"Recent news stories discussed why geography is important to an informed and engaged society.  To those of us in the geospatial profession, basic geography education is an essential foundation to encouraging young people to enter the workforce in surveying, photogrammetry, GIS and other disciplines in our field."
 

Geldt ook in de Nederlandse situatie, Daar is ook dringend behoefte aan technisch en geografisch geschoolden. GEO-ICT. Toch staat geografie te boek als een sociale studierichting waardoor de GEO-ict beroepen te weinig in beeld komen. Ligt dit aan de sector zelf of aan de indeling?

In a world of information the knowledge of geography is lacking.

Todd Pollard's curator insight, February 4, 2014 10:43 PM

Defining "geospatial" is still a convoluted mess.

The Economy Depends on Good Geography Instruction

The Economy Depends on Good Geography Instruction | aardrijkskunde | Scoop.it

"Geography-related jobs—a sector that features high salaries and low unemployment—will grow rapidly over the next decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Employment of geographers is projected to grow by 29 percent from 2012 to 2022, compared with an anticipated 11 percent increase for all occupations. Employment of geoscientists is projected to rise 16 percent from 2012 to 2022, and a 14 percent increase is expected for surveying and mapping technicians. Yet, the American Geosciences Institute's 'Status of the Geoscience Workforce 2014' report predicts a shortage of around 135,000 geoscientists by the end of the decade.  We are not preparing our young people to claim these jobs and advance innovative ways to use technology."


"Alles" wat er in de VS op economisch gebied gebeurt komt uiteindelijk wat later ook in ons land aan de orde. Iemand onderzoek naar gedaan? KNAG? GEONOVUM? Vervolgens ook publiceren lijkt mij.

5 redenen waarom juist nu aardrijkskunde belangrijk is!

5 redenen waarom juist nu aardrijkskunde belangrijk is! | aardrijkskunde | Scoop.it

Geographical literacy remains vital—particularly for those of us who live in (for the time being at least) the world’s preeminent military and economic superpower. Geography is necessary for understanding why :

1. the overthrow of a government in Libya contributed to an unprecedented surge of migrants into Europe,

2 why Ukraine has been split between East and West amid its conflict with Russia, and

3 why China’s neighbors are alarmed at the new islands under construction in the South China Sea.

4. And as we learned during last year’s Ebola panic, an understanding of African geography could have helped explain why an outbreak in West Africa should not lead to the quarantining of people from Kenya or Tanzania.

5. In the years to come, as the effects of climate change on everything from sea level rise to deforestation to drought quite literally reshape the world we live in, an understanding of geography will be necessary for mitigating and adapting to the consequences.

I think it's sad that people aren't educated enough to know where main superpower countries are such as Great Britain or some of the terrorist countries that have been all over the news for several years I was surprised and disappointed
