Education and Training at EU level
  • Member States retain responsibilities -
    principle of subsidiarity
  • EU actions are geared towards improving the
    quality of our education and training systems

  • ICT in education and training at EU level
  • Connectivity/Access (Broadband,etc.)
  • Quality content and services
  • Research and technological development
  • Best practices

5
Innovation in ET through ICT
  • Improve effectiveness and efficiency
  • Build flexible and responsive learning
    environments
  • Meet different learning styles/needs
  • Engage and involve learners, teachers, parents,
  • 21st century skills

6
Are the New Millenium Learners Making the Grade?
  • it is the quality, rather than the quantity,
    of ICT usage that determines the contribution
    that these technologies make to students
    academic performance
  • (OECD Technology use and educational
    performance in PISA)

Change is necessary inevitable but difficult
and too slow Need to scale up, learn from each
another Be clear about the vision and the
goals Grassroots reforms Top/bottom approaches
12
Our contributions
  • Provide stimulus and support
  • Demonstrate potential benefits and raise
    awareness
  • Support capacity building
  • Disseminate best practices
  • Engage and involve stakeholders
  • Create new opportunities for enterprises

13
Key data on learning and innovation through ICT
at School in Europe
Eurydice, 2011
  • Although ICT as a subject or as a tool for
    learning within other subjects is recommended in
    almost all countries, international survey data
    reveal a different picture of classroom practice.

http//eacea.ec.europa.eu/education/eurydice
14
ICT in education in Europe
  • Less disparity between schools regarding ICT
    equipment
  • Lack of adequate learning software and support
    staff is still affecting students' instruction

Eurydice, 2011
In European countries, according to PISA 2009, at
least 50 of students were in schools where one
computer is available for every two students.
On average, almost 55 of students in the fourth
grade and 45 of students in the eighth grade
have computers available during their mathematics
lessons.

Key data on learning and innovation through ICT
at School in Europe
Eurydice, 2011
  • ICT ARE PLAYING A CENTRAL ROLE IN COOPERATION
    BETWEEN SCHOOLS AND THE COMMUNITY AND TO ENGAGE
    PARENTS IN THE LEARNING PROCESS
  • ICT IS WIDELY PROMOTED BY CENTRAL AUTHORITIES AS
    A TOOL FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING BUT LARGE
    IMPLEMENTATION GAP REMAINS
  • ICT IS OFTEN RECOMMENDED FOR ASSESSING
    COMPETENCES BUT STEERING DOCUMENTS RARELY
    INDICATE HOW IT SHOULD BE APPLIED
  • TEACHERS USUALLY ACQUIRE ICT TEACHING SKILLS
    THROUGH THEIR INITIAL EDUCATION BUT FURTHER
    PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS LESS COMMON

21
Research and Innovation
  • RI key to strengthen the transformative role of
    ICT in education and training
  • Global patterns from demonstration to adoption

22
RTD at EU level
  • European Community Framework Programmes for
    Research, Technological Development and
    Demonstration.
  • A collection of the actions at EU level to fund
    and promote research.
  • Participation from countries outside of the EU,
    enabling international co-operation, foreseen.

23
RTD on Technology-enhanced learning
  • Research aims at improving our knowledge of how
    ICT enhances learning and teaching.
  • The work on learning draws on different research
    disciplines (computing, technological,
    pedagogical, cognitive and psychological
    sciences)
  • Focus on how technology-enhanced learning can
    better facilitate the learning process, in
    different learning situations, for individuals or
    groups of learners, motivating and supporting
    people who learn on their own or collaboratively
    with others.

24
RTD on Technology-enhanced Learning
Target Groups .
Pedagogical aspects
Technical aspects
Cognitive aspects
Organisational aspects
Focus on the learning process Intertwined
relationship between learner and organisation
25
Main characteristics
  • Researching understanding learning problems
  • Realistic assumptions about the systemic changes
    needed to realise the potential benefits of ICT
    for learning
  • Focus on key areas where impact is more likely

26
Priorities 2000 2001
  • ICT-based solutions for lifelong learning
    (inclusion perspective), schools, virtual
    universities, advanced training systems
  • Infrastructures for broad access to learning
    resources and services
  • High Quality Educational Content creation,
    access, maintenance and brokerage
  • Consensus Building and Standardisation activities
    in CEN/ISSS Learning Technologies Workshop,

27
Priorities 2002-2006
  • The term Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) was
    introduced
  • Focus of research was less on integration of
    technologies but rather on how people learn -
    through technologies
  • Three main objectives
  • Increase efficiency of learning - for individuals
    and groups
  • Facilitate transfer and sharing of knowledge in
    organisations
  • Deeper understanding of the learning process
  • Two lines of Action
  • Interactions human learning and organisational
    learning
  • Links between human learning, cognition and
    technologies

28
Priorities 2007-2008
  • Technologically-mediated responsive environments
    for learning
  • learning environments which motivate, engage and
    inspire learners, and make it possible to
    personalise learning to respond to specific needs
    and contexts (mass-individualisation of
    learning).
  • Adaptive and intuitive learning systems
  • innovative systems that self-configure their
    operations to optimally assist and respond to the
    learners activities according to their
    understanding and experience of learners'
    behaviour. These systems are able to identify
    learner's requirements from monitoring progress
    in an intelligent way. They make best use of the
    individual learning and cognitive abilities of
    the learner and produce meaningful advice to both
    learners and teachers.

29
Priorities 2009-2010
  • The classroom of tomorrow Large-scale pilots
    for the design of the classroom of the 21st
    century
  • Embedding learning experiences in organisational
    processes and practices and Combining creative,
    cognitive and computational processes for
    workplace learning
  • Adaptive and intuitive systems - affective and
    emotional approaches
  • Learning appliances and cognitive tutors
  • Focused interdisciplinary networks
  • Awareness building, roadmapping, evaluation,
    showcases

30
Where do we see potential impacts
  • Learning, through life, in extended organisations
  • improve return on investment on integrated
    solutions for learning
  • shorter time periods for learning, speeding up
    time to competencies (goal of 56 of
    organisations)
  • greater efficiency in business processes speed
    up and cut costs of on-the-job learning, ease
    change processes in organisations
  • enable capitalisation of organisational
    intellectual assets

31
Where do we see potential impacts
  • Improve effective use of ICT-based learning
  • research into better conceptual models of
    technology enhanced learning
  • greater capacity to deliver individualised or
    personalised learning
  • Support HE sector in move towards lifelong
    learning
  • coping with increasing diversity in the student
    population and their modes of attendance
  • continuous professional development
  • competition on a global scale
  • Contribute to competitiveness of eLearning
    suppliers
