Disaster-resilient school communities urged - thenews.com.pk - 0 views

  •  
    Considering the vulnerability of children and the role schools can play in case of any natural or human induced disaster, the speakers of a seminar have stressed for creating disaster-resilient school communities that are better trained and equipped for dealing with any such emergency situation.
     
    They demanded the government to declare May 16 as National School Safety Day and define standard operating procedures (SOPs) for schools which could be followed in case of any disaster. They said that these SOPs should be mounted on school walls and children and teachers be trained to strictly follow them.

BBC News - England's schools should learn from Japan, says Twigg - 0 views

  • He continues: "Education in England has had years of reform to structures, exams and accountability measures. But the style of classroom teaching has changed little since Victorian times.

    "In Japan, teaching practices have changed markedly in the last 50 years, through a process of gradual, incremental improvements over time. Japan gives teachers themselves primary responsibility for improving classroom practice."

  • He highlights how participation in continual professional development, known as kounaikenshuu, is considered a core job requirement in Japan.

    Mr Twigg also points out that in England, teachers lead students through a series of steps to help them learn how to solve problems.
