Connecting the World Virtually / Path for Quality Education

초록

Education provides us knowledge on our general surroundings and changes it into something better. However, several countries are, unfortunately, not even getting primary education, in particular, Somalia. Due to the ongoing civil war, children in Somalia are being forced to become soldiers at a very young age. They do not get the opportunity to educate themselves in the absence of government support, especially those marginalized. As a student, we truly feel sympathy towards the children in Somalia that lacked education and wondered how we could solve this devastating problem. We thought it is our chance to present them with a quality education. There are some reasons why we choose to do this. It is causing a low rate of income and employment due to the skill gap created between educated and uneducated people. Consequently, damaging the government and country through negative impacts like increasing crime rates and earning the lowest income. We came up with providing online education in Somalia's local centers with the invited professional teachers abroad, giving minimal primary education to the children. The immediate result of it would be the increase in the enrollment rate of students. As years move on, Somalia would develop an autonomous education system for future generations. Lack of education in Somalia and the world as a whole, it is essential to make them aware of the importance of learning. The power of education is enormous and leads to several positive effects for themselves. All students deserve a present of education and should be educated.

    안녕하세요. 발표영상과 보고서가 정말 인상깊었습니다. 아래에 몇가지 궁금점들을 적어봤습니다.

    1.Somalia’s technological readiness is currently low compared to other countries. How could virtual education be done in this situation?

    2. What are some specific ways to establish education centers?

      1. Although it is true that Somalia may face a financial and technological crisis when establishing a virtual education in their regions, we have thought out some ways to figure this out. We have come up with using recyclable resources by getting donations of secondhand goods necessary for implementing virtual education, which will help reduce the technology devices’ costs. Furthermore, according to the BBC, Somalia now offers the most technologically advanced and priced telecommunication and internet services, proving how Somalia is prepared in terms of technological readiness. And other than the internet issue, there aren’t many technical things to be ready. Only video conferencing technology and a projector for virtual teaching will be required, and they aren’t difficult to prepare. Moreover, the Somalian government can establish collaboration with international organizations such as UNICEF as well. Since UNICEF has diverse experiences in this area, they can effectively help establish virtual education in Somalia cost-wise and the other internal factors.

      2. As mentioned in the report, to establish the education centers, the government must help the company willing to build the infrastructures and install the internet. The word assist here means providing land or human resources and giving out financial aids for the company to have a reason to participate in this project. This financial support shouldn’t be a great deal for the government to handle. As stated in the previous answer, if there are still struggles in giving out this support, we have thought to break through this issue using recyclable resources to build the center and collaborate with UNICEF. As UNICEF has already experienced providing online education to certain places due to the COVID-19 situation, they would help establish the virtual system and create the proper infrastructure for the education centers.

    Hi, I am Heejun Kim, a mentor of SDGs Group 2.
    Thank you for the prepared report and video.
    It was good to limit specific areas to increase feasibility.

    Some questions have arisen while watching the video. The questions are as follows.

    1. How will you prepare the tools or skills, etc., for virtual education?

    2. How should the subjects of education be specifically determined? Considering the circumstance of Somalia, setting subject priorities seems essential.

    3. You mentioned the support of the United Nations or developed countries as a solution; why should they support Somalia “first”?
    Wouldn’t there be more important areas?

      Hi, we are the team GDT. regarding your questions, here are our responses.

      1. As we mentioned in our presentation and our research paper, we have thought of preparing virtual education tools through a donation of secondhand goods from people in the world. Examples of virtual education tools can be projectors to present online teaching and desks or chairs for students to study at the center. They will be prepared with fewer costs. The skills for virtual education can be organized by collaboration with UNICEF. UNICEF has given online education to a lowly developed country to know the best way to utilize virtual educational tools. For instance, they can use the Zoom meeting application to communicate in LIVE, helping students ask questions easily.

      2. We agree that setting subject priorities is essential since it is hard for them to learn everything usually. Since we are focusing on the primary education level rather than high-level education, we can teach essential subjects such as primary language, math, and history during virtual education. History class will be vital because it is significant for students to learn about Somalia and why these devastating situations have happened. Furthermore, basic languages like Somali and English will need to be prioritized. They are an essential key for communication, and during an internal war or in an awful situation, communication will be one of the significant aspects. Also, by learning a language, they will be able to insist on their thoughts and may even advocate reform of their country.

      3. Our team believes that there is no importance in choosing the order of providing support. As mentioned in the research paper, Somalia is considered one of the least educated countries globally. They are experiencing civil war that brings the country into a catastrophe. Children are threatened to be in war and cannot go to school and receive an education to save their lives. With this in mind, our team thought it is essential for this country to receive support from the United Nations early. Although there may be some nations that have education issues as well, our team believes that countries like Somalia must be a priority. The United Nations can further distribute the proposed solution to other countries accordingly while Somali children are free from danger and can focus on education.

    안녕하세요 GDT팀,

    그룹 6에서 아동 포르노 학대를 연구한 개인 참가자 박수빈이라고 합니다. 교육에 관하여 우선 소말리아 아동을 대상으로 연구를 진행하신 점 매우 신선했습니다. 특히 현재까지 진행 중인 내전 상황을 전제하여 국제기구가 나아가야 할 솔루션 방향에 대한 또한 개인적으로 흥미로웠습니다. 결말에 작성해 주신 온라인 수업 제공과 재정적인 한계에 대해 읽었습니다만, 해당 정책은 내전 상황뿐만 아니라 대부분의 저소득층 국가를 대상으로 시행해야 할 이상적인 방법으로 보입니다. 혹시 특별히 내전 상황임을 고려하여 시행돼야 할 특수한 솔루션이 있는지에 관하여 ? 팀의 의견을 듣고자 합니다.

    This is mentor Daesung Kim.

    Yes, the Internet can give cheaper access to education. Khan academy, Youtube, you name it. It does not, however, enforce continued efforts on Somalian population. Even with access to online education, chances are that children will become demotivated easily due to practical concerns.

    One possible solution to addressing the motivation problem is paving the way to further education. Universities, for example, can serve as an objective for children. Somalia has no linkage to higher educational institutes, so providing the Somalian with further educational opportunities is expected to keep their hands on education.

    Please develop on your solution and suggest ways to prevent Somalian children from giving up on education.

    Hello.
    We are Keonguk student council team 1.
    We are one of the groups who searched for education in Africa.
    Thus, your presentation was very interesting.
    The idea you claim is wonderful, offering online lectures and making education centers.
    However, are you going to pay for the expenses? If not you, who is going to be paying?
    In addition to that, children in those poor countries are forced to work, not to go to school by their parents. It shows the issue that parents are not cooperative and supportive to give education to their children. Thus, here comes other questions.
    Suppose you made the environment, do parents make their children go to your school? And how do you think we can change the parents’ way of thinking? Thank you.

    안녕하세요. 그룹 4에 참가하고 있는 허서윤입니다.
    First of all, I agree with you completely in that education matters. It was especially insightful to hear about Somalia, for although I was aware of their financial status, I was not aware of their educational bias.
    A question, though. You stated that you would build schools by reducing unnecessary consumption. However, I’m afraid that reducing unnecessary consumption would not be able to build ample number of schools around the country. The reason behind this are passive actions and uncertainty. We cannot gain money by controlling people’s consumptions, and simply advising them to reduce unnecessary consumption would not bring tremendous effect. Also, we need even more money for the online education you have offered. Are there other ways that can cover the bills? It would be great if we could talk about them!

    Greetings! This is Kyu Lee Park from TAT.
    Somalia has suffered from political instability due to terrorism and militant groups. Shouldn’t this be the first matter the country should deal with? If there is still unrest in the nation, do you think the solution you proposed for education will be effective? Even if the infrastructure necessary for distance learning is established, how would the government ensure that it is not compromised by militants? Are there specific safeguards that you propose? I look forward to your reply!

    안녕하세요 그룹 2에 포함된 조성원 학생 이라고 합니다.
    온라인 시스템을 구축하여 근처 몇천명의 학생들을 교육 시키는 것은 흥미릅고 또한 코로나로 인해 온라인 시스쳄의 친근성이 높아짐에 따라 가능성이 있는 해결책이라 생각합니다. 그러나 궁금한 것이 기부와 봉사에 너무 많은 의존을 하는 것이 아닌가 생각이 듭니다. 몇년의 장기 계획을 보시고 계신데,처음부터 화제를 충분히 모으지 못한다던가, 시간이 지남에 따라 관심이 서서히 떨어져 필요량의 기부나 봉사인원을 모으지 못한다면 어떻게 운영 하실 건지 궁금해서 여쭤봅니다.
