National Textbook Committee: compile a batch of new textbooks around artificial intelligence and blockchain
On January 7, the reporter learned from the Ministry of Education that the National Teaching Materials Committee recently issued the National Plan for the Construction of Teaching Materials for Universities, Schools, and Primary Schools (2019-2022) (hereinafter referred to as the "Plan"). Make systematic design for the construction of teaching materials in subject areas.
The relevant person in charge of the National Teaching Materials Committee stated that since the reform and opening up, especially since the 18th National Congress of the Party, the country has always attached great importance to the construction of teaching materials, and the organization and management of teaching materials have been significantly strengthened. However, there are still issues such as inadequate management systems and mechanisms, unclear responsibilities, and lack of overall planning. The "Planning" hopes to make substantial progress in three aspects. One is that the teaching material construction system is basically sound, the other is that the teaching material system is basically complete, and the third is that the quality of teaching materials has improved significantly.
In the textbooks of colleges and universities, "Planning" insists on improving the overall quality as the primary goal and is guided by the creation of quality textbooks, and strives to comprehensively promote the construction of different types of college textbooks.
The first is to speed up the construction of a philosophy and social science textbook system with Chinese characteristics. Further strengthen the research of Marxist theoretical research and construction of key teaching materials for construction projects, expand and refine the variety of textbooks, strengthen the construction of textbooks for specialized courses of Marxist theory, and promote the editing and review of textbooks. Recommend a batch of excellent philosophy and social science textbooks prepared by high-level schools and experts and scholars, launch a number of classics and abstracts, and compile a batch of Marxist classic books. The second is to create a number of natural science textbooks that reflect the world's advanced level. Adapting to the new situation, aiming at the national strategic needs, focusing on artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cyberspace security, environmental science, marine science, energy science and other fields, focus on writing a batch of new teaching materials, and build a batch of mathematics, physics, etc. The classic textbooks for basic subjects, the organization recommends a batch of textbooks that meet the needs of diverse talents in different types of colleges, and systematically introduces or translates and publishes a batch of overseas high-quality textbooks in the fields of natural science, engineering, and technology to improve the advanced nature of the textbooks. The third is to meet the needs of improving students' practical ability, innovation and entrepreneurship, and strengthen the construction of experiments, practical teaching materials and educational materials for innovation and entrepreneurship.
