  • Asia UNESCO study of ICT use in education in nearly 30 countries:The integration of ICT in the teaching of subjects has been weak. UNESCO report of the South-East ICT Advocacy & Planning Workshop, Dec. 2003

    AsiaEuropeMost schools in most countries, however, are in the early phase of ICT adoption, characterised by patchy uncoordinated provision and use, some enhancement of the learning process, some development of e-learning, but no profound improvements in learning and teaching.The ICT Impact Report: A Review of Studies of ICT Impact on Schools in Europe, Dec. 2006

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • Nordic CountriesICT has a positive impact on the schools overall target improving the pupils learning. But the study also indicates that the potential of ICT is not being fully realised in all schools. The use of ICT as a tool for pedagogical development is not in focus and the impact of ICT on knowledge-sharing, communication and home/school cooperation is only moderate.E-learning Nordic 2006http://www.skolutveckling.se/digitalAssets/106585_English_eLearning_Nordic_Print.pdf

  • Four-year study by Becta concludes:

    Personalized learning through technology is key route to educational improvement

    Having a high level of technology will dramatically improve performance, so long as there is the right support and enthusiasm to embrace it

  • United States HALF FULL? TeachersCDW-G Teachers Talk Tech Survey 2006

    63% of teachers say their technology skills are somewhat advanced or advancedYet most using technology for e-mail & Internet research, not to change teaching

    HALF EMPTY? StudentsFind the typical classroom doesnt reflect the rich technology they enjoy outside of schoolExpress growing frustration that schools are irrelevanthttp://www.tomorrow.org/speakup/speakup_reports.html

  • United StatesKeith R. Krueger, CEO of CoSN

    In most classrooms, technology/ICT is not integral to the overall educational missionIt has been used at the margins to improve education rather than do something profoundly different/better

    BUTCompetitiveness is a global concern. Developing 21st century skills is essential. We need to focus on how ICT enables critical thinking, creativity, collaborationVision by leaders matters. ICT in education can be powerful toolbut it not an end in and of itself.Rethinking pedagogy is essential. Focus on what ICT uniquely enables us to do around learning.

  • Staff Working Paper BUT Three main findings:

    Transformation of business and public services through ICT has not yet reached teaching and learning processesEmbedding ICT in E&T systems require further changesFurther work is needed on the potential of ICT to develop a learning continuum supporting LLL

  • Staff Working Paper A Key Challenge: ICT for Innovation

    Pedagogical innovation:

    Technological innovation

    Organisational innovation

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • A Key Challenge: ICT for Innovation

    1.Pedagogical innovation: Innovate the teaching & learning approaches Improve competencies for innovation by e-learning Bridge the distinction between learning, work and leisure via new LLL opportunities and modelsBring organised learning approaches closer to the everyday practices of future generationsSupport personalisation / learners are also knowledge builders and creators

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • A Key Challenge: ICT for Innovation

    2.Technological innovation: New opportunities through emerging technologies with enhanced networking capabilities and personalizationDigital media will enable the use of pod-casts, digital TV and radio and interoperability across platforms for learningNew creative approaches, such as simulations, gaming, offer learning toolsSharing digital learning resources provide scope for new business models for E&TDevelopment of e-learning quality standards

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • A Key Challenge: ICT for Innovation

    Organisational innovation: Schools evolve towards open learning centres, universities towards learning service providers, companies towards learning organisations and cities and regions towards learning support environments e-Assessment can help the management and the practical aspects LLL requires updating and recognition of knowledge, skills and competences at all educational levels

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • Three emerging priorities:

    Consolidate and generalise the use of ICT as a basic education and training tool

    Facilitate the potential of ICT as a lifelong learning enabler

    Enhance the potential of ICT as a key driver for innovation and creativity

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • 1. Consolidation of ICT as a basic learning tool

    Step up efforts to ensure general take-up and full pedagogical integration

    Invest on proven value tools and resources: interactive whiteboards, game-based approaches, personalisation, e-quality, e-portfolios, e-assessment and social software are six promising areas

    Focus on pedagogy, not on technology

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • 2. Facilitate the use of ICT as a lifelong learning enabler

    Focus on providing access and support across time, space and social barriers

    Focus on areas less well covered so far, yet with the highest potential for efficiency and equity:Special education needsContinuing professional development Access to learning resources anytime anywhereSupport to geographical, job-related and social mobility

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • 3. Enhance ICT as a key driver for innovation and creativity

    An increasing part of learning occurs informally and through ICTUser involvement has proven to be a factor for successful innovation (open innovation)Communication and collaboration technologies support the development of personal competences such as creativityThe pervasion of ICT (Web 2.0, broadband and mobile) reveals a wide potential for fostering creativity and innovation in education and training

    Reijo Aholainen, ICT Forum 2008

  • Staff Working paper A final conclusion

    Pedagogical, technological and organisational innovations demand a renewed and more comprehensive approach towards the role of ICT in E&T.
