OECD Report - Measuring Innovation in Education (Ontario data and World - country data)

OECD Report - Measuring Innovation in Education (Ontario data and World - country data) | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Data and research on education including skills, literacy, research, elementary schools, childhood learning, vocational training and PISA, PIACC and TALIS surveys., This report explores the association between school innovation and different measures related to educational objectives. This book is the beginning of a new journey: it calls for innovations in the field of measurement – and not just of education.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

The study uses business metrics in evaluating educational innovation. This might be OK for some, however I do not see education as a business and think it is inappropriate to measure it as such. What has happened is that education has devolved into a prefabricated process of inputs and outputs called School using Technique.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Can we learn anytime and anyplace? Yes, we can. Is this part of a new hidden curriculum where we are tethered and shackled to our work?

I wonder to what degree the blended or even online PD approaches outlined in this intriguing report will be accepted by the teaching community here in Australia? To the best of my knowledge, the majority of PD offerings in Australia are the traditional one:many off-site presentations. There are some instances of in-house literacy coaches such as me in Adelaide who provide on-going mentoring with individual teachers. For our context, in which my teachers and I meet 1:1 weekly and then team-teach once or twice per week, coaching has proven to be an invaluable model. Sustainable teacher capacity is being built and improvement in student literacy outcomes right across the curriculum are being experienced.
