A focus on the need to train and support teachers with content, online communities and ‘how to teach’ guides. 4. A pressing need for the standardisation of assessment in the classroom, both summative and formative. De-centralised Education Systems and trends in pedagogy In de-centralised education systems, and in developed economies, we are seeing a continuing move towards enquiry-based learning and the notion of self-aware students and self-aware practitioners. This refers to the emphasis on teaching students how they learn, and how to plan and organise their own learning (a good example is the work of the highly influential educator John Hattie and his Visible Learning programme which is being increasingly adopted worldwide).
