SOCIAL POLIS – EF7/EDUCATION AND TRAINING
Comments to first EF/7 Paper Xavier Martínez Celorrio. Universitat de Barcelona (xmcmartinez@ub.edu)
1. Summary of relevant issues and research in Education and Training
More than 55 research projects and thematic networks that address directlyissues of Education and Training were supported under FP4 and FP5. Inaddition to individual projects, from 2001 until 2003 five
project clusters
weresupported around themes of policy relevance. These clusters brought together groups of related projects in a way that drew out and consolidated key findings,produced thematic reviews, promoted synergies between projects andintegration/cross-fertilisation of research results from individual projects.
Cluster 1. Education and Labour Market Change: The Dynamics of Education to Work Transitions in Europe
Cluster 2. Education, equity and social exclusion
Cluster 3. Monitoring and Evaluation of Research in Learning Innovations
Cluster 4. Synergy between Practitioners' needs and opportunities,Research orientations and Decision Making on the usage of ICT inprimary and secondary education
Cluster 5. Towards the Learning Society: conclusions from FP4 and FP5projects to shape European policies in education and trainingIn 2007 were published a series of eleven policy reviews on socio-economicsciences and humanities research. The policy review of education researchfunded under the 4th and 5
th
Framework Programmes has been carried out bySally Power (Cardiff University, UK): Policy Synthesis of EU Reserarch Results,num. 4-Education. (ftp://ftp.cordis.europa.eu/pub/fp7/ssh/docs/ssh_pr_04_en.pdf )The review covers 28 selected projects, which completed their research between1998 and 2006, covering all phases of education –from early childhood provisionto the needs of adult learners. They include a variety of methods, sources andmulti-scale options, including sociological, economic and pedagogicalinvestigations. Sally Power (2007) identifies five broad policy themes:a)Modernising education systemsb)Innovations in teaching and learning
c)Addressing inequalitiesd)Education and employment
e)European “convergence” and integration
 
There exists a strong correspondence between the five
project clusters
and thefive themes analysed by Power. I think, both classification of themes and issuesare also correlated with André, Malheiros & Abreu proposal: (a) Lifelong learning;b) Cities networking, info networkings, distant learning; c) Exclusion and inclusionthrough education systems; d) Ethnic minorities/immigrants education; e) Thenew contexts of higher education (“mass” he, new social responsibilities, …); f)Education new governance models
2. Gaps in knowledge: new learning needs and schools for future
Maybe we can integrate the projects selected by André, Malheiros & Abreu,taking into account the prior reviews cited. After mixed this different “clusters” of knowledge, we can project five main themes from a scheme founded on “Citiesand Social Cohesion” perspective:1.- Lifelong Learning Societies & Cities: How can activate the “re-skilling”process in cities and regions? How can educational institutions better respond tolifelong learning? What’s the role of lifelong learning strategies in cities that arerestructuring in front of globalization? Which are the internal and externalcoherence between formal and non-formal education in local contexts?2.- Modernizing Education, Governance & Local Communities: How canregulate the education decentralization and devolution process in local contexts?How can develop scholar autonomy as a local empowerment process? How canimprove the participation of families and civil society in local schools? What’s therole of teachers as public intellectuals in local communities?3.- Urban Inequality, Education, & Employment: Why are education and trainingpolicies failing to secure sufficient levels of basic skills? Why and how continuethe social reproduction of inequalities in our cities between social classes? Whichare the results of priority areas schemes in poor-communities? How are thebenefits of marketization process in local education contexts? Which are therelations between new forms of illiteracy, mass-popular culture and media?4.- Urban Diversity, Education, & Social Inclusion: How national curriculum reflectthe European citizenship? How are they reacting in front of cultural and capitalistglobalization? How are the inclusive education in diversity between newgenerations, teachers and families? Which are the social conflicts around moraland religious education in multicultural cities?5.- Urban Schools, Creativity & Learning Innovations for Future: How can schoolsimprove their capacity for change and innovation? How can local schools beinstitutions of creativity, networking and civic cohesion? Which are the learningneeds and gaps between “digital natives” and “digital immigrants” ? .,….
