A Systemic Approach to Technology-Based School Innovations

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.

Preface

Centre for Educational Research and Innovation

Human capital is at the heart of the innovation process, and our educational systems bear the primary responsibility for nurturing and developing the capacities and innovative capabilities of our fellow citizens. Yet, education is costly; for many countries, educational expenditures constitute a large proportion of public spending. In the light of the current recession and consequent budget constraints that every country faces, governments are looking at ways to maximise the returns on their investments in education. This is not a purely economic perspective: human capital and talent are critical for the development of our societies; thus, investing in education and getting returns on it are important for the well being of all.
