Mongolia adopts new method of learning

The Star, Malasia
Oct. 19, 2003 • Monday October 20, 2003

A study technology, developed by L. Ron Hubbard, will be introduced in Mongolian schools through Applied Scholastics (AS), an organisation that makes available Hubbards educational methods to the world.

At the invitation of Tumor Ochi, the Speaker of the Mongolian Parliament, representatives of Applied Scholastics went to Mongolia, including S. Krishnan, the executive director of Applied Scholastics Malaysia.

Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology, developed the study technology to help students learn how to learn and understand what they study. It consists of tools and techniques teachers can use to improve the learning rates of their students.

Krishnan, Ann Roberts, an exponent of AS learning technology for African nations, and Damien Bolger, from the UK chapter of AS, presented the study technology to Ochi.

Democracy is new to Mongolia and reforms in all aspects of Mongolian socio-economic life have been introduced over the last decade, said Ochi, who was introduced to Hubbards learning technology during a visit to Britain.

A memorandum of understanding for the implementation of the study technology was signed by the Mongolian Ministry of Education.

There are at present 624,000 students attending schools in the 29 provinces of Mongolia.

Krishnan said AS in Malaysia will work closely with the Mongolian Ministry of Education to create an implementation strategy.

It will be a tremendous challenge as the course materials and books would have to be translated. The Mongolian national language, Altaic, has the same roots as the Finnish and Hungarian languages. Modern Mongolian is written in Cyrillic script, he said.
