How this new curricular of the education FUCKS up all the students graduating from high school right now, too many choices, not enough knowledge on ALL the choices, the failures of the reforms of education here, off of the Front Page Sections, translated…
“The mainstream cultures are forcing us to enrich our résumé, and not get tied down by some place; it’d forced us to focus on the abstract skills we’d attained that can be used in anyplace, instead of being good at just one particular skill. …………it tells us, to NOT persist on any one thing seriously, and don’t be surprised when others choose to do differently. Most importantly, it tells us, to keep our options, open.”
The above passage is out of “Dedicated. The Case for Commitment in an Age of Infinite Browsing.”, the writer, Pete Davis points out, that the unlimited browsing became, a norm of every day life. Netflix being a good example of this. People often click the icon, and used the mouse to go from “Showing Now”, “Top Ten of the Day”, “Netflix Original”, “Documentary”, “Drama”, all the way to, “Surprise Me”. Dozens of minutes flew by, and, after skimming through the hundreds of choices of the forty categories, people lost their interests, and just, turn off the computers. And, the options from unlimited browsing, made us lose the abilities to focus on one solitary, task.
Looking closely at the reforms of education of 2019, the ideologies of “helping every student find what s/he is good at, and succeed in learning”, is quite, amazing. The entrance interviews by the colleges, universities, are from tis group of recent high school graduates. Through the written applications, the evaluations of the information packets by the professors, as well as the interviews, as a college lecturer, I have so many questions: does the reform of education of 2019, really fit to the needs of the current world it says that it’s supposed to?
The designs for the learning process profile platforms, are only a tip of the iceberg of the reforms of education of 2019. I’m not talking about the uploaded data packs getting lost, but the interface of the system, along with the designs of the user experience, it’s directly opposite of what the core values that the reforms of education in 2019 had preached about. And, once more, it’d shown, that what the adults tell the younger generations to do, they can’t even, manage themselves.
There are, many myths to the 2019 Curriculum Reform, including, the holistic belief of mastering everything, along with the free choices of the multivariate learning processes.
What worries me the most, is that the 2019 Curricular Reforms are focused more on the core values, instead of the non-knowledge craftsmanship. Which one’s more important, it’s hard to decide. And yet, looking at now, people are slowly, losing their ability to tackle one thing well enough. And, the mainstream beliefs keep on, demeaning the values of knowledge. And we can find that apparent, in the current pandemic outbreaks: how many lives had already been, lost.
And this is still due to how HALF-ASSED legislations of the government on the reforms of education became, it’d NOT transitioned the students well, just, pulled them out of their original state, and, stuck them into this new system, and of course, nobody can adapt, not the parents, not the students, let alone, the professors, but hey, that’s the way, we can, catch up to the western world, or so believed, the DDP government, which is total BULLSHIT!
Considering how long the west had been educating using their current means, and we’re just, switching to the new methods of teaching and learning, and the students’ brains don’t shift into second gear that fast, so of course, a lot of them are SCREWED over.
Not to mention the instability of the uploading system, like how it got FRIED in the central data processing units, and everybody who’d submitted their separate (and equally USELESS learning process profiles) got FRIED, because the central processing system got FRIED, oopsy daisy!
So you see, the system is still, way too, flawed, and, how are we supposed to educate our children in this, flawed, FUCKED (don’t pardon me here!) system, because the government suddenly got that idea of hey, we should get connected to the western world, and use THEIR ways.
