Does Our Current Education System Promote Student Engagement Beyond Pen and Paper Tests?
Too much of our education system is structured for the intellectually, sedentary student whose application of knowledge is assessed through pen and paper tests. Students also need to interact with subject matter in a way that promotes creativity and greater appreciation for the content.
Does Innovation Occur in the Current Teaching and Learning Environment?
Our education system is progressing in a way that promotes uniformity both within departments in individual schools and among schools as well. The effect of such oneness is a generic product of teachers whose individuality within the classroom is discouraged and whose attempts to foster genuine interest in subject matter beyond the scope of the syllabus conflict with the need to complete the syllabus itself.
Because our measure of productivity is students' collective performance on standardized tests or regional examinations, most tend to focus on test and exam scores and overlook the end which the acquisition of knowledge is intended to create. The learned innovate, but with classrooms that are not structured to promote such innovation, then youth will be disadvantaged.
