The proposal is a part of many-years global project that we carry on since 2014. Educational experts from 6 APEC economies (Russia; Japan; Chile; Indonesia; Chinese Taipei and Thailand) are involved.
The proposal’s goal is to monitor math education levels and differences in math teaching approaches in school teaching in different APEC economies, to perform a comparative analysis of obtained information and elaborate recommendations based on this analysis. The recommendations will be aimed on smoothing differences of math teaching and will be open and available for any school educators and officials of participating APEC economies.
To implement this, we plan to: develop by means of participating APEC experts a cross-test on math to be held in participating APEC schools in Sept-Dec 2017; to hold the test in at least 30 schools and about 2000 student participants in Russia; Japan; Chile; Indonesia; Chinese Taipei and Thailand in Jan-May 2018; to process the obtained data and develop recommendations by educational experts from Russia (Jun-Aug 2018); to publish the recommendations on the Internet platform, making them open for all users.
The project implementation will help to raise the math education quality and to pull together school teaching in different APEC economies, helping to achieve three goals of HRDWG’s mission: development of 21st
Century knowledge and skills for all, integration into the global economy and addressing the social dimensions of globalization.
