On July 14, 2015 I presented a short introduction for the discussion of the TEINUM 2015 Conference in The Hague: The European International Model United Nations for young delegates from all over the world. This talk was to trigger discussion ICT and Education for the delegates who had read the paper prepared by the organizers on this subject: Empowering-Youth-through-Access-to-Information (1)
I did propose a number of approaches that may be of practical use in the field and to construct effective government policies to boost Teachers, students and schoolchildren. In words, July 7, of the PM of Norway, Erna Solberg: “Education is the key to development”
There ARE big problems with education in many countries. Look for instance at this chart (for OECD countries, so you can imagine how even less fortunate countries can educate their children). So much talent is wasted.
Ignore the difference in this chart between boys and girls at 15. It is well know that girls are learning much faster and better at that age. Boys are still childish then and are confused by their hormones boiling, distracts from homework.
