Group blog presentations
'Stories from the field' (Australia & UK - school retrofits and impact; WIS, Hong Kong)
Group activity - review stories from the field - to stimulate comments on innovations in education & report back to class
Globalisation & role of ICT as vehicle for education reform - KBE trends & required competancies
Group tasks - role of policy and ecology in sustaining change - identify and explore the conditions that contribute to the scalability, sustainability, and transfer of innovations.
Individual tasks and preparation for final presentations next week - Group blogs and individual assignment peer review Chapter 11: Education innovations beyond technology Disruptive technology - NOT a tool used to sustain or improve traditional pedagogical practices
Core “disruption” - changing teacher/student ROLES
Changes in values, practices and infrastructure at institutional level and beyond eg assessment practices and university admission requirements
Ecological analogySchools - nested ecologies within local and national education systems‘
'Scaling up and sustaining innovations can easily fail’ - unless the focus encompasses ‘mechanisms to foster adaptive changes in the wider educational environment' beyond the school and the classroom
Cases as niches – six dimensions of innovation – few very innovative in all dimensions - some typical profiles of classroom ecologies identified – though innovative across some dimensions only –teacher-centred cases empower teachers.
Most innovative – student-centred - empower students and are the most significant in changing roles PEDAGOGY AND ICT USE IN SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: FINDINGS FROM THE IEA SITES 2006 STUDY Law, N., & Yuen, H.K. (2007)

Research study involving 22 education systems - Canada, Chile, Hong Kong,Taipei, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Norway, Russian Federation, Russia-Moscow, Slovak Republic, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain-Catalonia, South Africa, Thailand
9000 schools~35000 grade 8 mathematics and science teachers

Pedagogical orientations
1.Traditional orientation: content goal focus; teacher role as instructor and assessor; students follow instructions and close-ended tasks

2. Lifelong learning orientation: students to work in teams on open ended real world problems; emphasise problem solving, collaborative and organizational skills; students - active role in identifying the learning problem & how to tackle it; teacher - facilitative role

3. Connectedness orientation: students learn from local/international experts; students work and learn with peers across schools; students develop global understanding & cultural sensitivity through collaborating with students from other countries Findings related to:
1. Status & Change: impact of ICT-related policies and strategies on school conditions for ICT use
2. Impact: ICT use on students and how teachers use ICT
3. Strategy: what works best to foster ICT use to improve learning?

Teachers more 21st century oriented when ICT used
Students’ ICT-using learning activities more 21st century oriented

Policies to promote teacher adoption of ICT use generally involve strategies on the following:
Infrastructure & support staff time
Technical & Pedagogical support for ICT use
Professional development for teachers
Leadership development in school
A balanced, holistic approach probably works best Analysis of cases
Identification of key factors at school, community and system levels as positive predictors of innovativeness:

• ‘The school’s vision and goals include any of the following⎯ promotion of lifelong learning, promotion of active learning, development of positive values, using ICT as a tool to empower students’ learning;
• Experience, within the school, of carrying out ICT innovations;
• A collaborative work culture within the school;
• The principal as an initiator and/or supporter of the innovation;
• The school providing staff and students with access to the internet and technical support, and/or providing students with access to ICT beyond scheduled class time;
• Government education policies, including ICT-specific directions;
• Local community involved as a collaborator/partner in the innovation.’ Findings:
Transferring using a ‘farming’ model of change (replication of innovation) may seem efficient - not very feasible due to ecological context of the innovation

IPPUT cases – only sustainable when viewed beyond the classroom The studies reported - inspired by two important ideas:
• Effective use of ICT to support pedagogical innovations plays a disruptive role that brings transformative changes to teaching and learning in the classroom
• Pedagogical innovations as emergent phenomena are both deeply influenced by and influence the contextual environment in which they are situated.
