VANCOUVER AND BEIJING,
/PRNewswire/ - China Education Resources, Inc. (TSXV:CHN) (Pink Sheets OTCQX: CHNUF), a leading technology provider of online learning, training courses and tools for teachers, students and education professionals in China, announced today the formation of the "China Primary & Secondary School Online Education Academy". The mission of the academy is to study the issues and challenges that lie ahead for the kindergarten through grade 12 curricula in China and then integrate the research and recommendations into the China Education Resources' education portal.
"With the creation of the academy, we are seeking to put the best minds together in order to create the most talented educational platform possible for our teachers, educators and students. Initially, we will be focusing on three areas: improving the teachers' development of learning and research as well as classroom teaching results; implementing the national education plan and expansion of online training; and developing the models of school-based online teaching and study," explained
Resources. "Utilizing our relationship with the Chinese Society of Education as well as the Curriculum Development Center (CDC) of the Ministry of Education, we are expecting our educational platform to transform into one of the primary, national resources for teacher training, curriculum experiences and student interaction."
"Teachers are definitely the key to improving the overall education system. We have seen a significant increase in the annual training budget for teachers and expect this continue. In fact, starting this year each teacher must take a qualification exam every five years in order to continue as an education professional. This will be a big challenge as we undertake the chore of training over 12 million teachers on a regular basis," said Gu Mingyuan, president of the Chinese Society of Education (CSE), the largest academic organization in China with over 850,000 educators and distinguished teachers as members. "Online training will be a crucial element in accomplishing our goal."
