Towards Sustainable And Scalable Educational Innovations Informed By The Learning Sciences

One of the basic principles that underpin the learning sciences is to improve theories of learning through the design of powerful learning environments that can foster meaningful learning. Learning sciences researchers prefer to research learning in authentic contexts. They collect both qualitative and quantitative data from multiple perspectives and follow developmental micro-genetic or historical approaches to data observation. Learning sciences researchers conduct research with the intention of deriving design principles through which change and innovation can be enacted. Their goal is to conduct research that can sustain transformations in schools. We need to be cognizant of research that can inform and lead to sustainable and scalable models of innovation. In order to do so, we need to take an inter-disciplinary view of learning, such as that embraced by the learning sciences. This publication focuses on learning sciences in the Asia-Pacific context. There are researchers and young academics within the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education (APSCE) community who are concerned with issues of conducting research that can be translated into practice. Changes in practice are especially important to Asian countries because their educational systems are more centralized. That is why there is a need to reform pedagogy in a more constructivist and social direction in a scalable way.

This book considers how the fundamental issues relating to the use of information technology in education, are being tackled across the world. Significantly it features international perspectives on the challenge that information and communications technology poses to teacher education; views of trainee teacher experiences with computers; insights into the ways in which communication technologies are being used to link teachers and students; consideration of the impact of change with information and communications technology; discussion of the roles of those involved in developing teacher education with information and communications techology at national, institutional and teacher levels. It contains the selected proceedings of the International Conference on Information technology: Supporting change through teacher education, sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing, and held at Kiryat Anavim, Israel, in June/July 1996.

These proceedings derive from an international conference on the history of computing and education. This conference is the second of hopefully a series of conferences that will take place within the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and hence, we describe it as the "Second IFIP Conference on the History of Computing and Education" or simply "History of Computing and Education 2" (HCE2). This volume consists of a collection of articles presented at the HCE2 conference held in association with the IFIP 2006 World Computer Congress in Santiago, Chile. Articles range from a wide variety of educational and computing perspectives and represent activities from five continents. The HCE2 conference represents a joint effort of the IFIP Working Group 9. 7 on the History of Computing and the IFIP Technical Committee 3 on Education. The HCE2 conference brings to light a broad spectrum of issues. It illustrates topics in computing as they occurred in the "early days" of computing whose ramifications or overtones remain with us today. Indeed, many of the early challenges remain part of our educational tapestry; most likely, many will evolve into future challenges. Therefore, these proceedings provide additional value to the reader as it will reflect in part the future development of computing and education to stimulate new ideas and models in educational development. These proceedings provide a spectrum of interesting articles spanning many topics of historical interest.

This book is a collection of refereed invited papers on the history of computing in education from the 1970s to the mid-1990s presenting a social history of the introduction and early use of computers in schools. The 30 papers deal with the introduction of computer in schools in many countries around the world: Norway, South Africa, UK, Canada, Australia, USA, Finland, Chile, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Ireland, Israel and Poland. The authors are not professional historians but rather people who as teachers, students or researchers were involved in this history and they narrate their experiences from a personal perspective offering fascinating stories.

This book investigates the interrelationship between educational reforms and pedagogical and technological innovations, as well as the implications of this relationship for the quality of human capital. By analyzing recent educational reforms in Russia and the US, the authors shed new light on how these reforms may help or hinder innovations, such as the introduction of computer technologies into classrooms, new methods of teacher evaluation, constructivist teaching methods, and governance in public schools. Taking labor economics as a useful lens for conceptualizing the diffusion of innovation, in the first part of the book the authors analyze book how certain power arrangements can block educational innovations in schools. In the second part they examine recent educational reforms in the US and Russia. The final part presents a vision of the next generation of educational reforms, which may enable innovation diffusion, rather than hamper it.

What S Worth Aiming For In Educational Innovation And Change

Results from international achievement test scores, such as PISA, ROSE, TIMSS, indicate national deficits in literacy and numeracy among OECD countries. In addition research findings indicate the inadequacy of inherited transmission models of teaching in generating critical thinking among pupils in lower secondary education. This book presents case studies from six European countries – Austria, Denmark, Czech Republic, Germany, Ireland and Spain – based on capacity building with teachers to develop educational innovation and change in the science and mathematics classroom and school. The teacher educators developed a theoretical framing that was responsive to both culture and context. Educational innovation and change was positioned as a pedagogical and political text, a deliberative discursive inquiry that crossed borders between teachers, teacher educators and others, including policymakers. Findings show that while it is clearly necessary for teachers to form collaborative networks this is not sufficient to generate the level of creative and critical inquiry required for educational innovation and change in the classroom. New roles are required for all education actors to bring teachers, at all stages of their professional lifespan, beyond their classrooms and schools, into sustainable public spaces, incubation spaces, in a deliberative discourse with teacher educators and others, including policymakers. The study has implications for the way the education policy process is currently enacted and the roles played by various actors, including teachers, teacher educators, school administrators and policymakers alike.
