“EP represents a great opportunity to offer our students something new.” “The students are really loving EP. They find the modules interactive and fun and working at their own pace is an added bonus.” “I am made more confident and comfortable to bring better practices into my classrooms.” “The remedial work on EP is a great way to fill the knowledge gaps that exist in the student community.”

Primitive children, before reaching puberty, learn by doing and observing basic technical practices. Their teachers are not strangers but rather their immediate community. “A systematic map and synthesis review of the effectiveness of personal development planning for improving student learning”.

  • It is informed primarily by psychology, bearing a relationship to that discipline analogous to the relationship between medicine and biology.
  • Nevertheless, some 260 million children are still out of primary and secondary school.
  • The term “alternative education” is sometimes used for a wide range of educational methods and approaches outside mainstream pedagogy, for example, like the emphasis on narration and storytelling found in indigenous education or autodidacticism.

Around the world, children are deprived of education and learning for various reasons. Children living through economic fragility, political instability, conflict or natural disaster are more likely to be cut off from schooling – as are those with disabilities, or from ethnic minorities. In some countries, education opportunities for girls remain severely limited.

These include parents, local communities, religious leaders, NGOs, stakeholders involved in health, child protection, justice and law enforcement , media and political leadership. The conventional merit-system degree is currently not as common in open education as it is in campus universities, although some open universities do already offer conventional degrees such as the Open University in the United Kingdom. Presently, many of the major open education sources offer their own form of certificate. Open education has been called the biggest change in the way people learn since the printing press.

Similarities – in systems or even in ideas – that schools share internationally have led to an increase in international student exchanges. The European Socrates-Erasmus Programme facilitates exchanges across European universities. The Soros Foundation provides many opportunities for students from central Asia and eastern Europe. Programs such as the International Baccalaureate have contributed to the internationalization of education. The global campus online, led by American universities, allows free access to class materials and lecture files recorded during the actual classes.

Intelligence is an important factor in how the individual responds to education. Those who have higher scores of intelligence-metrics tend to perform better at school and go on to higher levels of education. This effect is also observable in the opposite direction, in that education increases measurable intelligence. Studies have shown that while educational attainment is important in predicting intelligence in later life, intelligence at 53 is more closely correlated to intelligence at 8 years old than to educational attainment.

According to apperception or association theories, the mind is initially a blank slate and learns about the world by forming associations between ideas and experiences. This happens by presenting the learner with a stimulus, associating this stimulus with the desired response, and solidifying this stimulus-response pair. Many large university institutions are now starting to offer free or almost free full courses, through open education, such as Harvard, MIT and Berkeley teaming up to form edX.
