Teaching & Technology
CSC’s research team was responsible for developing a common research and evaluation framework that included research questions and methodology, for participating education systems to use in self-reporting the results achieved in their projects. This framework considered both English- and French-language educational contexts.
The research investigation during the 2012-2013 school year built on the findings of the research conducted in 2011-2012 and expanded its focus to identify: how the projects’ outcomes for student learning connected with 21st Century skills and competencies; impact evidence on the role technology played in changing teaching practice and in strengthening student engagement, learning, and achievement; and, effective practices that were suited to system scaling and sustainability.
For the 2013-2014 phase of the initiative, the research investigation continued to build on the findings of the previous phases to gain further evidence of the impacts of the innovation projects on student learning and achievement, focussing on 21st Century competencies, leadership, professional learning, capacity building, and system structures leading to sustainable change. An important component of this study was a collaborative process designed to foster knowledge creation and mobilization that would support local decision making regarding effective policies, programs, and practices for teaching, learning, and student success. CSC was engaged to conduct the research investigation for Round 4 of this initiative in 2015.
