The following chapter introduces an important international and comparative research effort to develop and contribute a set of tools to measure educators’ adoption of innovative teaching practices. It looks at the degree to which those practices provide students with learning experiences that promote the skills they will need to live and work in the 21st century. Still in its initial phase, this major research effort represents an important challenge to existing assumptions about the lack of connection between teachers’ innovation practices involving technology and students’ achievements.
