"This report provides new information and analysis on how far the world has come in reducing child and maternal mortality and malnutrition, ensuring universal primary education, protecting children against abuse, exploitation and violence, and combating HIV/AIDS. It is based on an extensive and valuable set of reports by United Nations Member States, which show that results are mixed, but positive in many respects. In the five years since the Special Session, there has been progress in many countries; but the national reports make clear that actions are still needed everywhere to accelerate progress."--P. v.

The 2006 EFA Global Monitoring Report, maps the global literacy challenge, drawing attention to new methods for measuring it more accurately. It analyses how societies have attained widespread literacy before critically examining national strategies and international commitments aimed at achieving this goal. Although adult literacy rates doubled in Sub-Saharan Africa, the Arab States and South and West Asia from 1970 to 2000, the rate of progress has slowed considerably since 1990, according to the report. If present trends continue, only 86% of the world's adults will be literate by 2015, up from 82% today.Reflecting deep-seated gender inequalities in many societies, women account for 64% of the adults worldwide who cannot read or write with understanding. This figure remains virtually unchanged from 63% in 1990. Every year, the EFA Global Monitoring Report assesses where the world stands on its commitment to provide a basic education to all children, youth and adults by 2015. Its developed by an independent team and published by UNESCO, with the UIS as a key member of the EFA monitoring team, providing statistical annexes and analysis which lay the foundations for the report.

In recent years, a diffuse way of promoting information and communication technologies is through the quantification of data, such as indices of references, access counters to webpages, total views of videos on YouTube, and others that are often superficial for didactics. Some data are presented as magnets to attract students to education courses—education as a commercial product and not as a public good freely accessible to all. This is an attractive format in offline and online communication channels, but it lacks metrics to build and evaluate knowledge and experiences with a critical perspective. Assessment Methods and Success Factors for Digital Education and New Media analyzes and evaluates the efficiency of the teaching-learning process and dissemination of knowledge to make the most of the potential of new information and communication technologies, examining the theories and practices of interactive content, under the formula of constructive criticism. Covering topics such as digital challenges, information architecture, and interactive design, this premier reference source is an excellent resource for educators and administrators of both K-12 and higher education, software developers, interactive designers, preservice teachers, teacher educators, evaluators of interactive systems, government officials, librarians, researchers, and academicians.

Ranging from Confucius and Montessori to Dewey and Edward de Bono, the entries form concise, accessible summaries of the greatest or most influential educational thinkers of past and present times. Each essay includes the following features; concise biographical information on the individual, an outline of the individual’s key achievements and activities, an assessment of their impact and influence, a list of their major writings, suggested further reading. Carefully brought together to present a balance of gender and geographical contexts as well as areas of thought and work in the broad field of education, this substantial volume provides a unique history and overview of figures who have shaped education and educational thinking throughout the world. Combining and building upon two internationally renowned volumes, this collection is deliberately broad in scope, crossing centuries, boundaries and disciplines. The Encyclopaedia therefore provides a perfect introduction to the huge range and diversity of educational thought.
