image of Inspired by Technology, Driven by Pedagogy

This report highlights key issues to facilitate understanding of how a systemic approach to technology-based school innovations can contribute to quality education for all while promoting a more equal and effective education system. It focuses on the novel concept of systemic innovation, as well as presenting the emerging opportunities to generate innovations that stem from Web 2.0 and the important investments and efforts that have gone into the development and promotion of digital resources. It also shows alternative ways to monitor, assess and scale up technology-based innovations. Some country cases, as well as fresh and alternative research frameworks, are presented.


Monitoring and assessing the use of ICT in education

The case of Australia

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

This chapter documents how Australia has had an increasingly complex perspective on the broad issue of monitoring and assessing the use of technology in education. In particular, the Australian experience documents how to monitor technology use in schools in the context of a complex governance system, as a true recognition of the variance in scope and depth that technology-based innovations have across schools and territories. In addition, the chapter elaborates how Australia is addressing the need for substantial progress in the collection of evidence concerning how young people become equipped with digital literacy skills and, in a broader sense, with 21st century skills.
