The future youth of the nation; The future of youth is handed over to education

That great life-changing force, the World Bank’s support for education programs created by nations is transforming the future of youth … transforming humanity with a radical vision; Fair, social, environmental, economic and technological justice is possible … Within the framework of the United Nations (UN) Turkey’s Sustainable Development Goals, we have highlighted the importance of 2030 and the endangered goals of the World Bank from DIPFRIZ in the World Education File. Today, from a special frame for May 19; We focus on education, youth and future relationships.

The World Bank, as the largest education fund in the developing world, operates in 90 countries. Due to the emerging and deepening problems of the epidemic, various calls have been made to governments and the public around the world for access to inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all by 2030. In collaboration with the government; Accelerating progress by returning children to school, recovering lost learning time, and establishing an improved, more equitable, and more flexible education system depends on the design of the ambitious and aggressive ‘Learning Improvement Program’.

Provision of new and innovative forms of on-site use of information and communication technology in education and assistance in the learning process is extremely important for both teachers and all young people! Because the future of the nation is in the hands of the youth, and in the education of the youth.

The World Bank develops its activities by supporting innovative projects and research in the effective and appropriate use of information and communication technology (ICTs) in the education system (“EdTech”) to strengthen education. It creates projects in partnership with governments and organizations around the world to support knowledge sharing activities. As part of the larger work on education, it has made various contributions to global poverty reduction.

How is that?

How can countries take advantage of EdTech investments to develop flexible hybrid learning systems?

The World Bank is looking for a new solution with countries to determine how to solve problems with affordable connectivity, device systems, cloud solutions and the delivery of multimodal education. While countries’ investment in distance education is helping to address the current challenges of education, many countries now have a dual role to play in distance education. It is a way to reach out to out-of-school children and provide lifelong learning to all citizens …

How can countries recover from learning loss, use data more efficiently and personalize learning through technology?

The World Bank is also deepening its study on adaptive education systems, distance assessment and how education systems can more effectively use learning analysis to personalize education. Much of this work is developing new strategies for education management information systems (EMIS 2.0) to support more efficient use of information.

What are the changing roles and new skills for teachers in hybrid learning systems and how can additional human connections be achieved through technology?

The World Bank explores countries to empower and support teacher qualification structures, teacher networks and innovative teacher communities. Teachers can be at the center of learning, especially in an environment full of technology.

How can countries take advantage of open technology ecosystems to expand quality content and learning experiences?

The World Bank collaborates with developing global public products and strategies partners to integrate a wide range of innovative ecosystems in client countries to support the design and development of new educational content and curricula. The team is developing practice communities around the EdTech Innovation Center and creative talent for developing new open learning libraries.

How can technology support future skill development, measurement and recognition?

The World Bank assists countries in redefining 21st century skills for students and teachers. Measuring and developing these skills by exploring ways to measure them more effectively; It recognizes collaborations with external partners who share knowledge and experience in blockchain practice communities for education.

But investing in educational technology alone is not the answer.

Although investment in EdTech is increasing, education and results are not changing significantly in many countries. An OECD report highlights that in terms of the impact of computer use in schools measured by PISA, “the impact on student performance is best mixed.” How? Experience to date highlights that distance learning and learning is not the same as face-to-face pedagogy. For example, many teachers who have access to e-content use it as a textbook for reading in the classroom. The scope of some of the new regulations is as follows: shorter and more modular content, focusing on more interesting ideas such as educational-fun, continuous feedback, small group online discussions and more open-ended questions.

At the core of education, of course, are human connections and relationships.

While we may never be able to change the magic that occurs in a face-to-face environment between great teachers and students, it is also essential to focus on the social aspects of technology to encourage distant connections. In a mixed learning environment that reaches students both at school and at home, much more needs to be focused on how technology will improve learning and learning.

‘Pisa’ and the challenges of the digital future in education …

PISA, meaning “International Student Assessment Program”, assesses the knowledge and skills of 15-year-old students over a three-year period by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Aiming at innovative field assessments and 21st Century interdisciplinary skills, PISA offers a more comprehensive approach to preparing the country / economy for their students’ lives. Since 2012, PISA has included an innovative field assessment in each cycle. On the way to 2022, let us be reminded that the results of PISA 2025 Learning in the Digital World assessment will be announced in December 2027.

The main objective of PISA is to measure the ability of students to apply the knowledge and skills learned in school in their daily life. In addition, our young people know better; To express more clearly their desire to learn, their performance in lessons and their preferences about the learning environment. At the end of compulsory education at PISA, 15 year old students who continue their formal education; In addition to math literacy, science literacy, and reading skills, information about students’ motivations, opinions about themselves, learning styles, school environment, and family is collected. The concept of “literacy” used in PISA research is defined as the search, use, acceptance and evaluation of written resources to develop student knowledge and potential and enable them to participate and contribute more effectively to society.

The study was conducted by the PISA Executive Board, an affiliate of the OECD Department of Education. Tasks such as the development and analysis of tests and questionnaires used in the research and the preparation of international reports are conducted by a consortium appointed under the auspices of the PISA Board of Directors.

At the national level, the process of translating and adapting PISA processes, conducting research, conducting analysis and preparing national reports is implemented by designated national centers in each country participating in the research … PISA 2022 Creative Thinking Evaluation includes a variety of methodological innovations.

Evaluation incorporates new types of interactive elements based on a visual design tool. For the first time in PISA, students need to create a visual artifact for some items instead of creating a written response or choosing the correct answer … Evaluation only multiple correct answers About without a single solution. It will involve more complex scoring methods based on informed rubrics and sample responses, including collecting and analyzing feedback from many students around the world.

What is rubric?

Rubric in the short sense; It is the scale of work and operation performed during the measurement of desired performance or value. A rubric is a scoring list that clearly indicates that students or participants have received the necessary knowledge or training. Depending on the Rubric results, the student or participant can view or measure their level. Rubrics is an objective study that gives clear results.

PISA 2025, on the other hand, focuses on learning and evaluating in the digital world … it offers several important innovations for PISA. Each test unit is designed as a modern, digital learning environment where students can find different resources such as tutorials or work examples to fill the knowledge gap and get intelligent feedback about their progress. In this open environment with low floors and high ceilings, students need to devise strategies for how much time to spend on various subtasks, how to deal with complex issues, and to monitor and evaluate their progress. Students’ performance is assessed not only by their ability to answer questions correctly, but also by the extent to which they are able to create a precise representation of their emerging understanding, presented as a program or a computational model. In this study, which, for the first time, will provide an international comparison of students’ self-regulated learning processes, including the measurement of motivation and emotion control, PISA … this evidence has been created by combining feedback and process data through innovative analytical models.

We need to review and eliminate all that is harmful and unproductive in organizing our schools. By changing these, we can greatly increase the joy that our children and adolescents receive from school and enhance their learning ability. In this way, we can gain strong gains as a result of training. For this, we can focus primarily on three areas nationally: negative processes and reducing outcomes; Ensuring the development of social cohesion and empathy; Increase post-school activities.

Everyone has their own inner aura

In school, those who do not do well academically are often stigmatized as inferior. Everyone has their own inner aura. Students’ ‘bad’ memories at school may be due to a lack of interest, not a lack of ability. Wherever there is enthusiastic student and inquisitive teacher, there is education. The challenge is to keep this experience alive and lasting in schools. Our kids are talented enough to achieve a lot, but we must help them become independent of us. If I want my students to work hard, I have to be the hardest working person I have ever met.
