From the Edi­tor

The Jakarta Post - Magazine - - Education -

Ed­u­ca­tion is a never-end­ing process that is cru­cial for all. It plays a role in shap­ing our fu­ture gen­er­a­tions and achiev­ing the dreams and goals that peo­ple set for them­selves.

Even though tech­nol­ogy is not the only de­ter­min­ing fac­tor to one’s aca­demic suc­cess, there is no deny­ing that dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy is in­vad­ing the school land­scape, of which ed­u­ca­tors, teach­ers and par­ents should be aware.

This spe­cial edi­tion on ed­u­ca­tion car­ries the theme “Ed­u­ca­tion in the Dig­i­tal Era” in re­sponse to today’s ever more tech­nol­ogy-cen­tric world.

In an ar­ti­cle ti­tled Cy­ber school­rooms: Chang­ing face of school today, you will find that in today’s cy­ber school­rooms, de­ci­sions on how to in­cor­po­rate high-tech de­vices into ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams de­pend very much on multi-faceted as­pects.

When it comes to overseas stud­ies, there are so many des­ti­na­tions to choose from, but study­ing abroad is of­ten a fam­ily de­ci­sion. You will find this in an ar­ti­cle on overseas ed­u­ca­tion in the dig­i­tal era.

Be­sides ar­ti­cles by in­de­pen­dent ed­u­ca­tion ex­perts, you will also find in­ter­est­ing pieces on schools’ con­cepts, pro­grams and cur­ric­ula shared by schools, which may help par­ents choose the right school for their chil­dren. There is, for ex­am­ple, a prin­ci­ple-cen­tered school that has de­vel­oped a “Leader In Me” pro­gram, which high­lights the seven char­ac­ter traits.

Not to be missed is, surely, a piece on Science, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing and Math­e­mat­ics (STEM) ed­u­ca­tion in an early child­hood set­ting.

Hope­fully, you will find this tabloid on ed­u­ca­tion use­ful.
