21C learning technology tools


2011 Research_Icon This report provides the analysis of findings from SRI International of the 2011 study across 7 participating countries.

A summary of the research findings appears below:

  • Innovative teaching supports students’ development of the skills that will help them thrive in future life and work.
  • However, students’ opportunities to develop these skills are typically scarce and uneven, both within and across the sample of schools in the study.
  • While ICT use in teaching is becoming more common, ICT use by students in their learning is still an exception.
  • Innovative teaching practices are more likely to flourish when particular supportive conditions are in place:
    1. Teacher collaboration that focuses on peer support and the sharing of pedagogical approaches
    2. Professional development that involves the active engagement of teachers, particularly in practicing and researching new teaching methods
    3. A school culture that offers a common vision of innovation and consistently encourages new types of teaching
