I will also address my personal experience in global citizenship and how general education classes helped me to get educated in this category. According to Reysen and Katzarska-Miller (2013), gglobal citizenship is having a sense of awareness, a caring demeanor, an accepting attitude, and having no boundaries on cultural differences. At the same time growing in equality and environmental welfare within our society and being aware of our responsibility to act on global problems that could side rail us from make the world a better place to live in. It helps people to coexist in our world which is becoming a
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” (Nelson Mandela) People always say that education is the key to success. They say one will never go far in life without education. Well is it true? Some may agree and some may not, but as research showed, education is the key to success. Not saying one must have high education right up to a PHD, but having to complete their higher education is something better then nothing.
We need to have a sense of empowering the society as a whole and not focus only on one section of the society. Like natyre provides equally for all we must also help each other develop as countries. This sense of social solidity is useful in a long run. Thus the concept of equity holds a very important place in the concept of sustainable development as it forms the foundation of development in the truest of sense. 7.)
Education for all is a global goal which emphasizes on providing universal access to primary education. Consequently, international attention tends to focus more on primary education rather than the higher modes of education, even though tertiary level plays an increasingly important role in human, social and economic development (Sutton, 1998; Escrigas, 2008). Bangladesh has made tremendous progress in ensuring primary education for its people. Research shows that net enrollment in primary education in Bangladesh is 97.9% (Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, 2015), which almost nearing the SDG-4 target of 100%. Higher level education, however, remains out of reach for a large portion of the population.
This is a bit of a disadvantage to the education system because 21st-century skills have been used for all countries. Students with less exposure to the 21st-century skills may cause our generation to be powerless to compete with other generation of nations. Therefore, researchers want to see what are the challenges of 21st-century skills faced by teachers.This 21st-century skill is a transformation made in renewing existing educational standards where the 21st-century education system is more flexible, creative, challenging and more complex. In addressing the growing education world, education needs to be rebuilt to meet the needs of students in the 21st-century world.For example, each school needs to be exposed to a life-related project-based curriculum aimed at attracting students in addressing real-world problems and current issues. To achieve this goal,
Can Information and communication technology (ICT) complement, enrich and transform education for the better? The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is an international partner towards success. UNESCO “as the lead United Nations Organization for education, UNESCO guides international efforts to help countries understand the role such technology can play to accelerate progress toward Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4), a vision captured in the Qingdao Declaration.” These mention of works that the UNESCO has done for the global community is an unwavering support to humanity. According to United Nations (2017), the SDG4 formula achieves inclusive and equitable quality education for all will require increasing efforts, especially in sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia and for
In the present age, along with the development of society, a growing number of problems are brought to our attention. Therefore, the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are in comprehensive way to solve the problems on the three dimensions of sustainable development: society, economy and environment from 2015 to 2030, which agreed by the 193 member states of the United Nations. These 17 goals would aim to reduce poverty and increase well-being, without destroying the earth. It is undeniable that these 17 goals play an important role in improving social current situation. Within these 17 goals, the essay would focus on discussing two sustainable development goals which are Goal 1 (No Poverty) and Goal 4 (Quality Education).
Much of today’s education is based on 19th century worldviews emphasising reductionism, linear thinking and positivism that make it very difficult for learners to find meaning, relevance and value in school or life. Much of today’s education is built on implicit 19th century mechanistic reductionistic assumptions about resources, processes and people. For most of the 20th century education was largely about a mechanistic process of ‘schooling’ that moulded the resource of raw students to fit the workplace and meet economic imperatives. It was rarely about learner centred education. There is a clear need for life-long learning for both personal wellbeing and economic prosperity.
Education not only improves the quality of life and empowers people, but has also been proved to be a major escape route from poverty. Lack of education is not just depriving people of a constitutional right but a basic human right as well. Those with fewer than 4 years of schooling are now generally considered “educationally poor”, and recognized as a distinct category by the United Nations. The recent Right to Education Act has been made it an unconditional Fundamental Right for every child to have an education up to the age of 14, and a conditional one even above the age of 14 in India. There is a requirement for comprehensive high quality data in order to interpret the ground situation effectively.
at are holding considerable thoughts in our hearts. In order to undo the damage that has been done because of the resultant declining of values in our society, a value-based approach must form the backbone of educational system in general and the teacher education in particular. Today, umpteen problems of tectonic promotions are looming large at the society and are challenging its very existence the days to come. The threats to the civil society constitute terrorism, poverty, population explosion etc which are eating into the vitals of the system. Hence as a result, they is an urgency and a crying need to not only incorporate moral values into the curriculum but also the teaching of them should be made mandatory which of late has been sadly
