Innovating to Learn, Learning to Innovate

image of Innovating to Learn, Learning to Innovate

OECD economies have experienced the transformation from their traditional industrial base to the knowledge era, in which learning and innovation are central. Yet, many of today’s schools have not caught up: they continue to operate as they did in the earlier decades of the 20 century. This book summarises and discusses key findings from the learning sciences, shedding light on the cognitive and social processes that can be used to redesign classrooms to make them highly effective learning environments. It explores concrete examples in OECD countries, from alternative schools to specific cases in Mexico, in which the actors are seeking to break the mould and realise the principles emerging from learning science research. The book also asks how these insights can inspire educational reform for the knowledge era, in which optimising learning is the driving aim and in which innovation is both the widespread catalyst of change and the defining result.

Open Learning A Systems-driven Model of Innovation for Education

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This chapter introduces the idea of a systemic approach to open innovation: one that is driven by demand from learners and those funding learning. The author details the way that in this approach, innovative practices can be incorporated directly into systems at a small scale and then diffused such that they influence governance and, in turn, larger scale reform. He furthermore cites recent examples in which this approach to innovation is applicable.
