ICT education in Primary schools - grounds for EU development
A subject that I saw that wasn't given enough attention in these parts was the education of children when it comes to ICT and Internet education.
Specifically, as a mother of a child myself, I see firsthand how neglected the subject of ICT is in public schools. Having one class per 2 weeks - and even then learning nothing useful - is not nearly enough. An increase in the number of classes per week in ICT education is mandatory. However, to determine the exact number of this increase will need heavy cooperation with the Ministry of Education, in order to synchronise our goals while keeping their educative norms and standards. The children are our future and so are ICT technologies and the EU can only benefit from having a secure future, with children who are educated in the strongest field in industry - which will only grow stronger as time goes by.
"More" is not everything ICT education needs. Criteria for what the children actually learn in these classes needs to rise and sharply. With the world moving at such a fast pace and ICT tech along with it, schools and educative institutions will have to keep up in order to give children the education they need.
The world is moving at an alarming speed and if we don't teach our children to go along with it, the world will leave them behind. And if the children get left behind, so does EU development. Kids are the ones who are going to push EU into rise.
