APEC-Tsukuba International Conference XIV
Building on the InMside-project (HRD 01 2018) for upper secondary schools, InMside II-project (HRD 05 2019) trains middle school curriculum developers to include Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data into the APEC economies’ curricula for building Inclusive, Sustainable and Digital society under Integration 4.0 against 4th Industrial Revolution. The Informatics and Data Science Education Reform is driven by computational and statistical thinking. The objective is to build the capacity of curriculum developers to produce recommendations for their curricula reform, teacher training, with enlargement of the network to support the APEC Education Strategy for 2030. InMside II provides Research Meeting at Tokyo, Japan in February, 2020, InMside II Seminar for training curriculum developers in Malaysia in August, 2020 and Synthesis Meeting in Thailand in November, 2020. The outcomes are the recommendations of curriculum on computational and statistical thinking with teacher training models, and the enlarged network of curriculum developers. Seminar in Malaysia will be supported by APEC grant, Malaysian grants or self-funds. Research Meeting and Synthesis Meeting will be supported by Japan, Thailand and self-funds. Specialists for Seminar and Synthesis Meeting will be recommended by every economy.
Objective of Research Meeting in February 11-12
Research the theoretical frameworks for curriculum developers on the issues and teacher training modules for preparing the InMside II Seminar in Malaysia
Present the theoretical framework and newest research issues for curriculum reform which must include:
- Computational and statistical thinking for middle (junior high) school level/li>
- Current teacher training programs for programing or computational thinking
- Gender issues
STEM and STEAM Education on the cross curriculum is possible to be considered under these three issues.
Role of Participants
Poster presentations for teacher training programs on various reform issues such as gender issues and researches for Industry 4.0.
