    China's IT in Education China's IT in Education Presentation Transcript

    • China's IT in Education China is the country of research and general information about its educational system and use of Technology OECD (2010), PISA 2009 Volume I, What Students Know and Can Do: Student Performance in Reading, Mathematics and Science, OECD Publishing.
    • China’s Educational Achievements Year Reform Program 1980 China launched a series of reforms in education. 1985 Decentralization finance and administration. 1988 Local production of textbooks(not uniform set of textbooks) 1998 Natural Science with Humanities was launched in the national curriculum. 1999 Re-design of higher education entrance examination. 2001 Content was re-organized according to life-relevance and progression in learning. 2002 Private schools expansion. 2004 National Education Technology standard was introduced. 2006 Financial support for education. OECD (2010), PISA 2009 Volume I, What Students Know and Can Do: Student Performance in Reading, Mathematics and Science, OECD Publishing.

    • Global Mathematics Performance Results on the 2009 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) Washington Post (June 16, 2011)"George W. Bush: Moments That Defined His Presidency," www. washingtonpost.com / AFP http://standardizedtests.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=4344
    • According to Hammond (01/27/2010) United States has a lot to do to improve its entire Education system in order for it to catch up with High Achieving countries such as China, Japan, Korea, Finland and more European countries because the 2009 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) results revealed America lacking behind from the high achieving countries. According to my scholarly articles report, U. S should move away from pure “bookish” knowledge and to improve relevance and interest in the content of a curriculum and repetitive and mechanistic rote-learning towards increased student participation, real-life experience, capacity in communications and teamwork, and ability to acquire new knowledge and to analyze and solve problems. (OECD, 2010) The High Achieving countries use very few standards for K-12 which can fit in about ten Pages. U.S. seems to have too many objectives and many of these will be repeated year after year. The high achieving countries train their teachers extremely well the main focus being on assessments. Students do a lot of hands-on projects, reflecting on their work, doing experiments and that is so different from what goes on in the U.S. schools. So the U.S. Federal Law is working on that improving funding for assessments and adopting policies from these high achieving countries. I would be inclined to share this video with such an audience as educators, principals/administrators, policy-makers, teachers, and stake holders because they play an important role in improving the teaching and learning of students.

    • Technology In Schools: Who Does It Best, China Or The U.S.? According to the graph, China shows 53% of technology integration in the curriculum whereas U.S. is 29% on that same finding.

    • Lessons from PISA for the united States Shanghai and Hong Kong: Two Distinct examples of Education reform in 90 OECD 2010 Strong Performers and Successful reformers in education: lessons from PISA for the united States To move away from pure “bookish” knowledge and to improve relevance and interest in the content of a curriculum. To move away from repetitive and mechanistic rote-learning towards increased student participation, real-life experience, capacity in communications and teamwork, and ability to acquire new knowledge and to analyze and solve problems. To de-emphasize the screening and selective functions of assessments and instead to emphasize their formative and constructive functions. To move away from centralization, so as to leave room for adaptation to local relevance and local needs. To move away from pure knowledge transmission towards fostering learning attitudes and values. To move away from discipline-based knowledge, towards more comprehensive and balanced learning experiences.

    • The achievement gap in America’s schools http://mckinseyonsociety.com/the-economic-impact-of-the-achievement-gap-in-americas-schools/#sthash.OZDgtc8F. dpuf Four distinct gaps in education: (1) between the United States and other nations (2) between black and Latino students and white students (3) between students of different income levels. (4) between similar students schooled in different systems or regions.
    • National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) results show that, over time, black and Hispanic students have made great strides in improving performance in reading and mathematics. Under President Barack Obama’s Administration, the U.S. Department of Education also stepped up attention on gender and racial gaps in students’ college enrollment and success rates, toward a goal that the United States will lead the world in college graduates by 2020. The economic-stimulus law passed by Congress in 2009 required states provide more equitable distribution of high-quality teachers for poor and minority students. Policymakers and educators hope to find new ways to close achievement gaps faster in the decade to come. The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, shined light on achievement gaps and increased accountability for high-need students, but it also encouraged states to lower standards and narrow curriculum, focused on absolute test scores instead of student growth and gains, and created one-size-fits-all federal mandates.

    • Black-White Achievement Gap Narrows on NAEP American schools have made modest progress in closing the achievement gap between black and white students in math and reading, though that narrowing varies by grade and subject and from state to state, a study released today shows.

    • Finland's Educational Achievements Finland and other northern European countries abolished tracking and created a unified basic school structure. Then revamped and upgraded their teacher education programmes and took steps to modernize secondary education.The learning environment must support the pupil’s growth and learning.

    • South Korea's Education reforms: In one generation, South Korea moved from a nation that educated less than a quarter of its citizens through high school to one that now ranks third in college- educated adults, with most young people now completing postsecondary education. http://www.ncee.org/programs-affiliates/center-on-international-education-benchmarking/top-performing-countries/south-korea- overview/south-korea-instructional-systems/

    • Unites States has to adopt the best practices of the high achieving countries such as China, Finland, Hong Kong, Singapore, German etc. and these are as listed: 1.Unites States has to adopt the best practices of the high achieving countries such as China, Finland, Hong Kong, Singapore, German etc. and these are as listed: 2.Revamping and upgrading the teacher education programs and take similar steps to Finland to modernize secondary education. 3.To invest in the education sector and change public attitudes toward holding teachers in higher esteem. 4.Providing information to make schools accountable and giving autonomy to schools and head teachers. 5.Policy makers should create a common, untracked comprehensive school system that would serve students from all walks of life regardless of race, family backgrounds for example. 6.Improve foreign relations with developing nations like Africa or Latin America, and U.S. needs to provide the aid in more transparency to those continents really need, as well as to make non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
    • Unites States has to adopt the best practices of the high achieving countries 7.America should approach the world with an open mind in a spirit of goodwill and partnership especially in its relations with China, and all high achieving countries which share many of America's most cherished traditional values: hard work, lifelong education, and devotion to family and community. 8.The Department of Education should inquire about the Chinese government’s strategy for achieving inclusive education for children with disabilities. 9.Other countries have been pouring resources into education, both their achievement and graduation rates have been climbing for all their students, including recent immigrants and historical minorities. 10.U.S. should reform the education because the 21st century is characterized by the availability of abundant information, advanced technology, a rapidly changing society, greater convenience in daily lives, and keener international competition .
