Edtech taking off in Southeast Asia

Sadachika Watanabe - Nikkei Asian Review

In much of South East Asia, populations of youth are swelling, and the limiter is the number of qualified teachers and learning materials. Furthermore, existing schools are incapable of catching up to curriculum and other changes demanded by government. This is where edtech is making waves.

Some factors making edtech an attractive solution include high smartphone penetration in the region, and access to in-expensive high speed service. IBIS Capital expects the Asia-Pacific market alone to grow from 46% of the global market to 54% by 2020, valuing it at an estimated 136 billion.

Singapore: A student-centred education system

The Straits Times

Singapore has started a series of reforms to promote greater flexibility and diversity in schools. This changes point to a future where diversity of talent, intensity of passion, and uniqueness of skills will be fully supported as students pursue their dreams and a competitive edge in the new economy.

EdTech: A Growth Area for Africa

Jens Ischebeck - All Africa

Africa is becoming one of the most important developing educational markets. A need for high level skills is fueling the demand for higher education in a part of the world where traditional education models are not always appropriate. Opportunities for the development and growth of education technology are ripe. The following data supports this conclusion:

1. 17 miillion of 128 million school-aged children in Africa will never attend school.
2. The average age of an African is 19.5 years old.
3. 60% of the population lives in rural areas, far from centers of higher education.

University Students are Buying Assignments: What Can Be Done About It?

Philip M. Newton and Michael J. Draper - LSE Impact Blog

The practice of purchasing completed school assignments from companies by university students is on the rise and threatens to undermine education standards. The practice is currently legal. Four solutions are proposed:

1. Assessment design (e.g. face-to-face assessments)
2. Stakeholder education (e.g. increased institutional support through instructional tools)
3. University regulations (e.g. make "contract cheating" a serious academic offense and create a coordinated approach between other universities)
4. Creation of a new law to create an offense of strict liability on the sale of essays

Researchers Point to Paradigm Shift in Flipped Learning

Rhea Kelly - Campus Technology

Flipped Learning 3.0 has been declared after a year-long analysis of the global state of flipped learning by the Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI). Stating that the ground beneath flipped learning has shifted, five important conclusions have come to bear:

1. Awareness that flipped learning is a dynamic, not static, instructional model that is rapidly changing.
2. Recognition that flipped learning is evolving in unexpected ways because of increased research, classroom innovations and advances in technology.
3. The emergence of flipped learning as a global movement.
4. A new awareness about the scope, impact and implications of flipped learning.
5. Expanding global demand for skilled flipped learning professionals.
