Transcript

  • 1. Creating the Future Model of Education Pavel Luksha [email_address] SCHOOL 2020 Presented to the Forum on the Future of Education November 2009, Obninsk, Russia
  • 2. Russian Education in the ‘Reactive Mode’
    • Increasing gap between the content of education and demand from the economy / government
    • Changes come from outside, and the education system reacts :
      • e.g. ‘Unified State Examination * - should be cancelled’ ; ‘Bologna process - should be stopped’ ; …
    • ‘ Reactive Mode’ is a weak position : “please give us back what we had before the change came”
    A STRONG POSITION WOULD BE: “LET’S MAKE IT BETTER BY IMPLEMENTING A NEW MODEL OF EDUCATION ” * Unified State Examination (EGE) – standard aptitude test mandatory in Russia since 2008
  • 3. A New Model of Education
    • Responds to global challenges
    • Responds to the country’s strategies in the modern world ( geopolitical, economic, scientific, cultural …)
    • Responds to requests and demands of students
    DOES A RESPONSE EXIST ?
  • 4. School Education : New Global Challenges
    • “ Post-information society” : the traditional model of knowledge transfer is not required at all ( ‘Google knows everything’ )
    • Life long learning gets real : deinstitutionalization of education ( ‘iPod instead of lecturer’ etc. )
    • ‘ A school of life’ or ‘a school for loosers” ? ( like Russian Army is now )
  • 5. Country Situation and Strategic Dilemmas
    • Geopolitics ( strong Europe, pressure from China , internal instability, depopulation ): a new model or a collapse of united country?
    • Economics ( ‘post-oil era’ , inability to compete with Asia) : smart manufacturing or “Fourth World”?
    • Science ( demolition of scientific schools, objective inability to lead in key areas) : focused breakthrough or “Fourth World”?
    • Culture ( reduction of the ‘Russian World’, conflicts between religion and modernization) : cultural renaissance or cultural degradation?
  • 6. Pragmatics : How the world will look for school graduates in 2020 ?
    • Competition in the global labor market : traditional and new developed countries ( Asia -20 25 : +1 billion urban citizens from now )
    • Technological and social progress : the most prestigious professions of 2020 many not even exist today, and skills learnt in school will be not relevant
    • Employers receive ‘semi-finished product’ requiring additional learning / training – practice is more valuable than knowledge
  • 7. The future cannot be foreseen but it can be built Trends may create a range of scenarios BUT The probability of any scenario depends on our actions
  • 8. Re-Programming the (Secondary School) Education ?
    • For post-information society, the revision of education models implies:
      • Responses to new challenges of education
      • Positioning towards the country priorities
      • Key skills of employees in 2025 ( in real connection between the school and the professional world )
  • 9. Some Elements of the New Education Model
    • Abandoning of the traditional ‘teacher as speaker’ model in favor of a shared research & exploration model
    • Abandoning of the traditional subject-focused model in favor of the ‘competence learning’ model
    • The key competencies :
      • Working in the modern organizational environment ( communication, management and creativity in peer groups)
      • Working in the world of abundant information
    • New learning environments
  • 10. Some Ideas for New Education Model
    • Collaborative work and creativity
    • Firm knowledge, not ‘correct answers’
    • Shared process of search for truth
    • Real student democracy
    • Abandoning of class- and lesson-oriented (Komensky) education system
    • Learning of skills for learning
    But… these are ideas of of 20-century Russian pedagogues ( Shatsky, Makarenko , …) , the ground of our work in last 20-30 years – can they be the ground of new education model ? WHAT ELSE IS NEEDED THEN ?
  • 11. Designing the future of Schools : “design probations” (by Philips Design)
  • 12. ‘ Future Probation’ for New Learning Environment : School -2020 in Britain and in the US
  • 13. What else could be done : government?
    • State-supported grant system for the development of education methods for post-information society
    • Federal program for creation of new learning environment prototypes
    • Public-private programs for the development of distance learning courses, electronic certification systems etc.
    • Grants for creation and distribution of innovative educational programs in mainstream and alternative education
    • Exchange of international expertise, incl. transfer of Russian ‘best practices’ in education to foreign teachers
  • 14. School -2020 : Challenge to Be Taken
    • The challenges of post-information society are real . The crisis of educational system and radical change of education models is a global phenomenon rather than Russia-specific one
    • ‘ Reactive’ paradigms in education mean that the government will make educational system change – but not the way we want it and with some delay
    • The Russian pedagogic traditions can help the Russian educational innovator community lead the process of the global education paradigm transformation - Will you be able to use the chance of ‘anticipatory development’ ?
