The need for a systemic approach to technology-based school innovations

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

While access to new digital technology in schools has increased measurably in the past ten years, it has not been adopted as quickly and intensively as expected despite policy efforts to promote and support technology-based school innovations. This chapter explores possible reasons for this response on the part of schools and teachers from the perspective of systemic innovation. Specifically, it addresses the question of how more effective knowledge management at the system level of technology-based school innovations could contribute to educational change.
