Bri­tain and Shang­hai ex­change math teach­ers

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

The launch cer­e­mony of the 2017-18 Eng­landShang­hai Math­e­mat­ics Teacher Ex­change Project was held at Shang­hai Nor­mal Univer­sity Mon­day, thep­a­per.cn re­ported Mon­day. Bri­tain sent 70 teach­ers to Shang­hai for two weeks; Shang­hai will send 34 and 36 pri­mary school math teach­ers to Bri­tain in Novem­ber 2017 and Jan­uary 2018, re­spec­tively.

For this cul­tural ex­change, China and Bri­tain will swap math­e­mat­i­cal lessons, the­o­ret­i­cal re­search, im­mer­sion teach­ing tech­niques, class­room sim­u­la­tions, field vis­its and ex­pe­ri­ence shar­ing. Shang­hai math teach­ers have been rec­og­nized glob­ally for their abil­i­ties and suc­cess tech­niques.

Since the par­tic­i­pa­tion in the PISA (The Pro­gramme for In­ter­na­tional Stu­dent As­sess­ment) test in Shang­hai in 2009, the global im­pact of Shang­hai’s ba­sic ed­u­ca­tion has been grow­ing. Ac­cord­ing to preliminary re­sults of the third party eval­u­a­tion of the 2014 ex­change ac­tiv­i­ties by Sh­effield Hal­lam Univer­sity, most of the 48 schools par­tic­i­pat­ing in the first round of this pro­gram had vary­ing de­grees of suc­cess af­ter a visit by the Shang­hai teach­ers.
