What issues in education are of greatest concern to you?
Developing learners with self-direction, self-determination and who assume responsibility for their learning.
Developing learners who will reach out to networks and resources to continue their learning beyond the confines of the classroom and curriculum.
Developing learners who persevere in the face of obstacles--who don't give up easily.
Currently, one of my areas of interest is scaffolding educational uses of social media & new technologies, and helping form the policies and practices in K-12 schools that will support those uses.
Creating a greater reach.
It's hard to address since I am not in the classroom setting. I see issues with standardized testing and classroom sizes being so large.
All of them, but the students themselves are first priority.
How we can integrate the labor market needs to the academic curriculum. Theres a gap, a wider one and we need to focus around whats needed without leaving humanities, social sciences, math, history and other classes that makes that person a desirable employee prospect.
The greatest, I would say "gravest" issues in education is the lack of money, the lack of incentives and the general decrease of values in society, in general.
The major trend we've been seeing is a globalization of student exchanges. While it's easier for some people to emigrate than others, our objective is to be able to help anyone achieve this goal and get inside Switzerland. This country provides high quality studies, among the best schools in the world.
The study below lists what is considered the best cursus by country. The United States is not on top of the list : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/27/best-education-in-the-wor_n_2199795.html
