Less than 1 minute, my friend!
Please give me your opinion about this:
I was just finishing translating an article about school systems and grades ( in northern part of Europe), I have noticed that lately there is the tendency to “quit” grades.
Many school institutions are switching to PASSED or NOT PASSED or they use nothing, no grades in any form.
What do you think about it? Significant member of countries are following.
Schools using this system swear that the students have never been better.
Because they learn not to for the sick of a good grade but for them self.
Also the system includes changing common school subjects or get rid of them in the classic form too.
For examp. the students have “Restaurant” Workshops where the learn how to calculate (maths), using PC (ICT), communicate (basic eng.) and using practical skills ( like cooking, decorating -being creative, serving, dining).
By the way, schools are almost free of paper, all goes via Ipad, Tablet , Pc or similar.
In my opinion, it is great, it is time the school system to change, to adapt to our needs today in order to keep up whit the requirements of today’s world, as these are by far not the same as they were 100 years ago.
Let me know what you think,
Many thanks for sharing
