Is the Traditional Role of the Teacher Outdated?

Lucy Bartlett
Independent

 
 
 

“…let me compare education to health care. If a doctor from 100 years ago entered a hospital today, he would feel very out of place. He wouldn’t understand the equipment or the processes. If, however, a teacher from 100 years ago entered a modern day classroom, he would not feel so lost…“

My Modest Proposal...Why Not?

Jenny Bowen
Half the Sky Foundation

 
 
 

I’ve just returned from my sixth annual visit to the Skoll World Forum in Oxford, UK. The Forum (and the Skoll Foundation) is focused on “accelerating entrepreneurial approaches and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing social issues.” Like most of the 1,000 delegates, I’m sure, I came away energized, full of bright ideas and new resolve. But this time around, it also got me thinking. Maybe we’re missing something here.

Closing the Gap: Tackling Global Health Challenges

Andrea Coleman
Riders for Health

 
 
 

‘Closing the gap: tackling global health challenges’ was the final session I attended for the 2014 Skoll World Forum. It showed that important discussions happen here right up  to the last moment. The session, led by Peggy Clark of the Aspen Institute, looked at why the critical issues of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and mental health continue to be neglected, despite their importance and growing threat to populations.
