World Almanac of Educational Technologies

Ever wonder about the educational structure of different countries? (Come on, admit it, we all do). While certainly not exhaustive (only includes nine countries at this point), World Almanac of Educational Technologies is a wiki “designed to explore the concepts, conditions and uses of technological tools within global education initiatives”. For the countries currently listed, the reader is provided with a solid overview of the structure and method of education, policy, and technology use.

    I think this is a brilliant idea. The concept of comparing societal systems seems to have been epitomised recently by Michael Moore’s ‘Sicko’ documentary.

    My field is clinical education, and I wonder about the impact of the system of health-professional education- both under-/graduate and vocational- on the delivery of socialised (or otherwise) health care.

    Certainly in New Zealand (where I live) and Australia, the training and accreditation of surgeons is heavily controlled by the college of surgeons (www.surgeons.org), with very little influence from the national ‘ministry of health’ and ‘district health boards’.

    The only pity with the current posts is the linear, minimally-sectioned nature.
