Rethinking Mathematics Education — The Learner's Way

Posted: January 15, 2017, 6:05 am


  • What becomes clear, as you dive further into the emerging research that connects what we know about learning, mindsets, dispositions for learning and the development of mathematical understandings, is that a new approach is required. We need to move away from memorisation and rule based simplifications of mathematics and embrace a model of learning that is challenging and exciting. We can and should be emerging all our students in the beauty and power of mathematics in learning environments full of multiple representations, rich dialogue and collaborative learning.  - Nigel Coutts

Learning and earning: Equipping people to stay ahead of technological change | The Economist

Posted: January 13, 2017, 3:14 pm

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

Today robotics and artificial intelligence call for another education revolution

working lives are so lengthy and so fast-changing that simply cramming more schooling in at the start is not enough. People must also be able to acquire new skills throughout their careers.

lifelong learning that exists today mainly benefits high achievers—and is therefore more likely to exacerbate inequality than diminish it.

a burst at the start and top-ups through company training—is breaking down. One reason is the need for new, and constantly updated, skills.

The 19th and 20th centuries saw stunning advances in education. That should be the scale of the ambition today

It is easier to learn later in life if you enjoyed the classroom first time around: about 80% of the learners on Coursera already have degrees. Online learning requires some IT literacy, yet one in four adults in the OECD has no or limited experience of computers. Skills atrophy unless they are used, but many low-end jobs give workers little chance to practise them.

Lifelong learning starts at school. As a rule, education should not be narrowly vocational. The curriculum needs to teach children how to study and think. A focus on “metacognition” will make them better at picking up skills later in life.
  • Lifelong learning begins at home. Otherwise, it's an anomaly to the student's mind and may not be adopted. - Dallas McPheeters

Pushing people into ever-higher levels of formal education at the start of their lives is not the way to cope.

WHEN education fails to keep pace with technology, the result is inequality.
  • Inequality was there long before high-tech innovations. The only gap produced by tech is between those with access to networks and devices and those without. two thirds of earth still without access to internet.  - Dallas McPheeters
