'The pen is mightier than the computer for learning'

Pupils make substantially more progress in literacy if they follow a pen-and-paper course than if they take a similar programme online, new research has found. Researchers working with pupils in 51 primary schools found that those following a paper-based literacy programme made 50 per cent more progress than those doing an identical course on a computer. ... Dr Jenifer Ruiz-Valenzuela, an education researcher at the London School of Economics, who carried out the study for the Education Endowment Foundation, believes that it is not the medium of instruction that makes the difference. Instead, it is the teaching that goes along with it. ''In general, research finds very mixed results about the use of technology in school,'' she said. "There are studies that haven't found very big effects from the use of ICT in learning.

Four principles for the UK's Brexit trade negotiations

The meaning of Brexit is yet to become clear. But if Brexit means leaving the customs union of the European Union, Thomas Sampson looks at what it might meant for the UK to pursue its own trade policy for the first time since joining the EU in 1973.
What strategy should the UK adopt to secure its objectives in future trade negotiations? A successful strategy must be grounded in a clear understanding of why countries negotiate trade agreements and how negotiations are conducted.

Velká destrukce

Navíc si mezi sebou přestáváme důvěřovat. Z dat, která v roce 2010 uveřejnil britský ekonom Richard Layard, se ukazuje, že ještě v šedesátých letech 20. století se v USA 60 procent dospělých domnívalo, že může důvěřovat svým nejbližším – tedy rodině. Toto číslo pokleslo na třicet procent v roce 2010. Jedná se o varující signál, že něco není v pořádku.
Additionally, between them we cease to trust. From the data, which in 2010 published a British economist Richard Layard, shows that even in the sixties of the 20th century in the United States 60 percent of adults thought they could trust their closest - a family. That number dropped to thirty percent in 2010. This is a warning signal that something is wrong.
