Asia takes precedence over the map education

Asia takes over the United States and Europe primacy in higher education. In 2020. year, 40 percent of graduates from China and India.

MAP of Education, the rapidly changing appearance.

As a mirror of economic power, the universities in the United States, Western Europe, Japan and Russia have dominated the prestige in the world after World War II. The economic rise of Asia, particularly China and India is rapidly changing the established order. To 2000. U.S. and China are to equalize the number of graduates, India caught up with Japan. By the end of the first decade of this century, four out of ten students in the world come from China and India.

Prediction of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris said that 40 percent of over 200 million graduates aged between 25 and 34 2020. coming from the two countries, each with over one billion inhabitants. Only China will provide 29 percent of graduates in 2010, five times more than the previous decade, while in India and the United States to come 12 or 11 percent of the graduates.

U.S. citizens and the EU will do little more than a third of young people academically educated people in OECD countries and the Group of 20 most developed countries and those in the fast-rising - the organization said that comprises 34 industrialized countries in the world.

The share of the U.S., until recently, unquestioned power of the university, dropped from 17 in 2000. to 14 percent in 2010 and is expected to 2020th sink at the 11 If this trend continues, the number of college-educated people ages 25 to 34, from Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa will be nearly 40 percent higher than the number of people from all OECD countries by 2020 notes OECD spokesman Spencer Wilson. Brazil would, as anticipated, could have more graduates than Germany, Turkey more than Spain, Indonesia three times more than France.
The migration of knowledge, with the rapid development of technology, however, gives rise not only a new world university ranking, but it changes the way of studying. While China and India are steadily taking over, the fact remains that these and other countries that provide an increasing number of graduates, rely on Western standards, so the scientists noticed that the big question is whether the Chinese experts will be able to create new models.
Meanwhile, American universities are trying to put technology at the service of attracting students. This fall, more than one million students participate in an experiment which, estimated to be able to influence changes in the study.
Distance learning is not new, but now some of the major American universities such as Harvard and MIT, offer online courses. These two universities were linked in the project worth 60 million dollars, the program "Edeks" that offers an interactive "virtual" courses available to computer users anywhere in the world, free of charge, entrance exams, at least in this, the experimental phase.
Entering "heavyweights" in the arena of internet-study could, experts note, that a turning point. For now, priority is given to studying "eye to eye", but the emergence of new technological resources, as well as materials for study in digital form, creating not only changed the geography of higher education, but to displace the "virtual sphere". The trend is certain, given that, according to the OECD, since 1998. by 2008. employment in the field of science and technology grew at a faster pace than total employment.


Chinese students are highly placed in the prestigious OECD test - "writing" that measures skills in reading, mathematics, science. Andreas Schleicher, responsible for this test, notes that in China an impressive school buildings, unlike the West where they are typically shopping centers. Cultural differences, he said, reflecting on students thinking about how success in school. In the United States considered that it was "a matter of pure luck and talent." In Europe, they say it is a matter of family tradition. In China, most people think that success depends only on the effort.
