Signs of the Time Presentation 1

This presentation focuses on the four sources originally provided to investigate the ‘Signs of the Time’.  Each one is broken down in a different way to think about the information provided.  In the presentation there is a quiz to guess the rankings of the US educational system and other fun or scary facts about the direction of the world.  We also looked at Finland since they are ranked number one in Reading, Math and Science.  Follow this link below to read the article about Finland’s teaching methods and how they have achieved such high success.  For more information, watch Waiting for Superman, movie that examines the American and Finland educational systems.

Enjoy!
