WORLD #1 FOR EDUCATION 2019 | UCL Institute of Education



it's a wonderful accolade of course and a testament to the incredible work being done by all our staff alumni students partners clients and funders but we can't ever be complacent we have a job to do and that job is both more challenging and more needed than ever teachers are the light I know there's no teachers in this room hopefully they're speaking to teachers as well in this room but without you there's no hope for our children other role models recent research I've looked at the factors affecting children's mental health up to age fourteen there's an absolutely urgent need for more attention to this issue one of the greatest challenges facing society is the pace of change whether driven by technological advancement or greater instability around the world we're working to understand and directly respond to those drivers we know that we can develop good automated machines that can do the routine cognitive material that we currently teach and assess in a lot of schools a lot of the time we can't do is build systems that can appreciate what they understand can do this complex processing so we better concentrate on helping our human learners to be good at that because that's what they're going to need in the workplace and so a lot of the young people that we meet in A&E have kind of forms emotional dysregulation aren't able to regulate and control their emotions effectively so having an understanding of that through the master's program has really helped in my in my current work as a result of the lessons I've learned and the research I've done which is based on ICT policies in Ghana are happy requested by the Minister of Education in Ghana to lead the review of the three to Sherry education curriculum many refugees have come from non-english speaking countries and countries that are ravaged by conflict Reconnective the charities that was set up in 2003 to support refugees into higher education it introduced the education style of UK things that they thought would be difficult it somehow made it easier but this will leapfrog me into what I would love to do for the rest of my life that is teaching I'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported our work over the past year and say how much I'm looking forward to continuing to work together in these turbulent times it's education that will enable individuals and societies to better face the challenges and change
