Study on Impact of E-M Project on Korean Education.
Shin, Se-ho; And Others
The Elementary-Middle School (E-M) Development Project was conducted to provide comprehensive and scientific research on objectives, contents, and methods of education in Korea. It provided the basis for development of a new educational system through which major educational problems could be resolved. The project also provided opportunities to use educational research to modernize and reform the Korean educational system. This study examined the impact of the new educational system in the actual sites of instruction within the overall context of education in Korea. The Korean Educational Development Institute (KEDI) accomplished research on the development of a new educational system through four stages: system analysis, system planning, demonstrative implementation of the system, and evaluation of the system's effectiveness. As a result of the new educational system, the students' academic achievement, independent learning attitude, and expressive ability were improved. A positive self-concept concerning academic learning was formed. The quality of school management was improved. The teachers enhanced their subject guidance and instructional skills. The influence of the study on Korean education and aspirations for the future are discussed. (DWH)
