Collecting data about educational technology use in *all* countries in the world

Collecting data about educational technology use in *all* countries in the world | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
at least part of the picture is becoming a little more clear What's the impact of technology use on education, and on learning? This simple question is rather difficult to answer, for a number of reasons. The quick answer -- that 'it depends on how you are using it, and to what end' -- may be unsatisfying to many, but is nevertheless accurate. That said, before you attempt to assess impact, it can be rather helpful first to understand how technologies are being used (or not used) in actual practice. And before you can do this, it is useful to know what is actually available for use today, as well as some of the key factors which may influence this use. Being able to compare this state of affairs with those found in other countries around the world can help you put this knowledge into some comparative context. (Are we typical, or an outlier? Are we ahead, or behind?) Back in December 2009, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), the specialized agency within the UN system responsible for collecting data related to education (the World Bank's EdStats initiative is a close partner of the UIS in this regard) published a very useful Guide to Measuring Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Education [pdf] that has since been used to guide regional data collection efforts in much of the world. (The EduTech blog has looked at results from a number of these efforts, including in Asia, the Arab states, and Latin America, as well as more generally about what these efforts tell us about the state of school connectivity around the world; a regional report from the UIS on ICT and education in Africa is due out in the first half of 2015.) Building on these efforts, it is expected that the first comprehensive global initiative will commence next year to regularly collect basic data related to technology use in education in *all* countries, big *and* small, rich *and* poor. What sort of data might be important to collect, and what can be collected in practice? Are the existing set of 'indicators' put forward by the UIS relevant and useful, or should they be reduced/enlarged/amended, based on what has been learned as part of efforts to collect and analyze them in recent years? To help explore such questions, the UIS brought together a 'technical advisory panel' comprising an acronymic soup of organizations (including ADEA, ALECSO, CETIC, European Schoolnet, ITU, KERIS, OECD, TAGI, UNESCO, World Bank) earlier this month to review lessons from the first set of regional data collection efforts and to provide comments on, and suggest possible changes to, a consolidated list of related ICT/education 'indicators' and related questionnaire [pdf]. A new global survey of technology use in education, meant to be part of the regular, on-going data collection efforts of UIS in the education sector coordinated through national statistical offices, is due to launch in September 2015. ---

20 Effective ways to use Google Apps For Education - DailyGenius | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"Creating a connected classroom has gotten far more affordable now that the major tech companies have begun pouring resources into reaching teachers, students, parents, and school leaders. Aside from the Apple iPad, the biggest player in the world of education technology has to be Google. They regularly unleash new productivity and collaboration tools as part of the Google Apps For Education suite. Many teachers and schools have already ‘gone Google’ so what better way to figure out how to actually get started with the powerful tools than from an effective checklist that lets you quickly discover and check off new ways to use Google Apps For Education in your classroom, school, or district."

Dr. Doris Molero's curator insight, December 27, 8:45 AM

Core Learning Principles:
#1: Every Structured Learning Experience Has Four Elements with the Learner at the Center
#2: Every Learning Experience Includes the Environment in which the Learner Interacts
#3: We Shape Our Tools and Our Tools Shape Us
#4: Faculty are the Directors of the Learning Experience
#5: Learners Bring Their Own Personalized Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes to the Learning Experience
#6: Every Learner Has a Zone of Proximal Development That Defines the
Space That a Learner is Ready to Develop into Useful Knowledge
#7: Concepts are Not Words; Concepts are Organized and Intricate Knowledge Clusters
#8: All Learners Do Not Need to Learn All Course Content; All Learners Do
Need to Learn the Core Concepts
#9: Different Instruction is Required for Different Learning Outcomes
#10: Everything Else Being Equal, More Time-on-Task Equals More Learning
