The monitoring quality in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) country note for Australia is based on findings presented in the report of OECD (2015), Starting Strong IV: Monitoring Quality in Early Childhood Education and Care that covers 24 OECD member and non-member economies.
Les compétences occupent une place centrale dans le développement économique, social et humain des individus et des sociétés. Leur rôle est d’autant plus important pour une économie en développement comme le Togo, qui doit rapidement faire face à des difficultés majeures telles que l’ampleur de la pauvreté et de fortes inégalités alimentées par la prévalence d’activités peu productives dans le secteur informel et la faible création d’emplois décents.
Cette étude examine les principaux défis auxquels le système éducatif du Togo est confronté. Elle s’appuie sur la méthodologie développée par l’OCDE dans le cadre des stratégies nationales de compétences, et se focalise sur l’enseignement supérieur tout en tenant compte de l’ensemble du système éducatif et du marché du travail.
L’analyse couvre les enjeux principaux auxquels fait face le Togo quant à sa capacité à développer les compétences appropriées, à mobiliser les compétences sur le marché du travail, à utiliser les compétences efficacement et à renforcer la gouvernance de l’enseignement supérieur.
This report reviews the collection, availability and quality of system-level data and metadata on education from countries participating in the PISA for Development project: Cambodia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Paraguay, Senegal and Zambia. PISA for Development aims to increase low income countries’ use of PISA assessments for monitoring progress towards national goals for improving education and for analysing the factors associated with student learning outcomes, particularly among poor and marginalised populations. The project also helps track progress towards the international education targets defined in the Education 2030 Framework for Action, which the international community adopted in 2015 as the strategy for achieving the Education Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).
The report suggests technically sound and viable options for improving data quality, completeness and international comparability in the six countries that are reviewed. It also provides insights into overcoming some of the challenges common to countries that participate in PISA for Development and to other middle income and low income countries.
Students unable to navigate through our complex digital landscape are simply no longer able to participate in our social, economic and cultural life.
OECD’s Innovation Strategy calls upon all sectors in the economy and society to innovate in order to foster productivity, growth and well-being. Education systems are critically important for innovation through the development of skills that nurture new ideas and technologies. However, whereas digital technologies are profoundly changing the way we work, communicate and enjoy ourselves, the world of education and learning is not yet going through the same technology-driven innovation process as other sectors.
This report served as the background report to the second Global Education Industry Summit which was held on 26-27 September 2016. It discusses the available evidence on innovation in education, the impact of digital technologies on teaching and learning, the role of digital skills and the role of educational industries in the process of innovation. The report argues for smarter policies, involving all stakeholders, for innovation in education.
Bringing you the highlights from the OECD Directorate for Education and Skills
Instructional leadership is the set of practices that principals use in relation to the improvement of teaching and learning. It is a strong predictor of how teachers collaborate and engage in a reflective dialogue about their practice.
The role of the school leader is essential for pupil and staff success, and although good practice exists, there is still room for improvement.
The OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) is the largest international survey of teachers and school leaders. Using the TALIS database, this report looks at different approaches to school leadership and the impact of school leadership on professional learning communities and on the learning climate in individual schools.
It looks at principals’ instructional and distributed leadership across different education systems and levels. Instructional leadership comprises leadership practices that involve the planning, evaluation, co-ordination and improvement of teaching and learning. Distributed leadership in schools explores the degree of involvement of staff, parents or guardians, and students in school decisions.
How are principals’ and schools’ characteristics related to instructional and distributed leadership? What types of leadership are favoured across countries? What impact do they have on the establishment of professional learning communities and positive learning environments? The report notes that teacher collaboration is more common in schools with strong instructional leadership. However, about one in three principals does not actively encourage collaboration among the teaching staff in his or her school. There is room for improvement; and both policy and practice can help achieve it. The report offers a series of policy recommendations to help strengthen school leadership.
