Issue 152: Reforming Education for the Future of Work

152

In a rapidly changing and unpredictable world, education systems need to adapt to ensure that their students’ knowledge and skills remain relevant. Education reforms are necessary to provide our students the information and resources to address the key issues we face today. Attention is shifting towards digital learning to improve educational outcomes in many Southeast Asian countries. 

 

In the Philippines, the Secretary of Education and Vice President highlighted that technology can be harnessed to provide high quality education for all. Singapore’s Ministry of Education has recently announced the implementation of the EdTech Masterplan 2030. By introducing classes that focus on cyber wellness and leveraging AI features such as the Short Answer Feedback Assistant to provide assessment, both students and teachers can benefit from technology respectively. Vietnam is also planning to build an online database for higher education, making learning more accessible. This collaborative pool of resources will contain educational materials and best practices for students and professors. Cambodian teachers recently attended a workshop hosted by South Korea to improve their digital literacy, which includes learning to utilise AI tools that support online learning, as well as basic coding that can be used in classrooms.  

 

Regardless of this shift towards technology, all education systems should be continuously improved to provide a more holistic and well-rounded education for all. Should curriculum become outdated, students will struggle with creative thinking and real world application. Education reforms are essential to societal progress.
