					      THINK AGAIN

Hindsight, Insight and Foresight on
       ICT and schooling
           David Wood
          THINK AGAIN

Initiated as part of EUN ValNet programme


Developing further within EUN ERNIST project




                                               2
                 Main Foci
•   Political and economic climate
•   Impact and value for money
•   Training and CPD
•   Quality of content, tools, environments
•   „Spiraling‟ out beyond the school
•   Landscapes, scenarios and meta-scenarios

                                               3
Value for money and impacts on
           learning
• Views on the existing evidence base
• Future developments in assessment and the
  roles of ICT
• Knowledge creation under the different
  scenarios
• Need for a more system-based approach to
  evaluating costs and benefits.

                                              4
             SCENARIO 1


ICT strengthens the centralised regulation of
schooling




                                            5
            SCENARIO 2



• ICT supports the creation of schools as
  learning organisations




                                            6
            SCENARIO 3



• Citizenship at the centre: ICT supports
  the emergence of schools as core nodes in
  their communities




                                          7
            SCENARIO 4



• ICT fails to deliver: Technology
  meltdown




                                     8
    Impacts on Learning -past
• Economist report

• IMPACT-2 and
  – ‟main effect analyses‟

• OECD case studies
  – Multiple, hypothesis-driven case studies


                                               9
   Impacts on learning - future?
• Clarification of claims for ICT
• Clarification of categories and architectures
  of ICT
• Classification of types and qualities of
  different types of evidence
• More focused R and D in schools and
  science

                                              10
   Impacts on learning - future?

• Current examination practices fail to assess
  the benefits for learners promised by
  innovative uses of ICT
• Hence, need to envisage innovations in
  summative, formative and communicative
  impacts of ICT under different scenarios

                                                 11
Future assessment under different
            scenarios
• Scenario 1 - extends value added analysis to
  national level
• Scenarios 2/3 -
   – extend and develop scenario/portraits
   – develop new school-based assessments
   – Integrate school R and D with external research
     processes



                                                       12
            CPD for whom?
• “Training teachers in ICT pedagogical
  literacy is not a sufficient condition for the
  enhancement of learning”
• CPD for school managers and leaders
• CPD for the inspectorate
• Multiple constraint alignment


                                                   13
     Alignment of constraints
• Learner and ICT
• Teacher (Learner and ICT)
• School (Teacher, Learner and ICT)
• Community (School, Teacher, Learner and
  ICT)
• Policy and policy agencies (Community,
  School, Teacher, Learner and ICT)
                                            14
 Scenario Development & Uses
• Netherlands - school portraits
• Switzerland - teacher scenarios
• France - co-ordination and scenario
  development
• UK - scenario development for school
  leaders
• OECD - scenarios for policy formulation
                                            15
 Designing a new balance sheet?
• If ICT becomes mission critical, impacts on
  the system as a whole -spiralling out
• Look for models?

     • Economist and IBM?




                                            16
         Partners in the process

• Partners in case studies
         – Denmark
         – France
         – Netherlands
         – Portugal
         – Sweden
         – UK and add
         – Switzerland
