Innovation in teaching and learning is about finding new ways to improve current practices. An excellent review of innovation in the use of ICT in teaching and learning was the one of the first reviews undertaken by DERN in 2010. Building innovation: learning with technologies by Professor Kathryn Moyle explored national and international policy priorities for building student’s innovation capabilities using information and communication technologies (ICT). Now another excellent research report from ITL research about innovation in teaching and learning using ICT has emerged. The recently published Innovative Teaching and Learning (ITL) Research: 2011 Findings and Implications research undertaken in seven countries (Finland, Indonesia, Russia, Senegal, England, Mexico and Australia) was focussed on the question of educational renewal. This detailed research included 159 schools with 4,038 teacher and 159 Principal online surveys; 24 school site visits involving teacher interviews (86), teacher observations (81), school leader interviews (18) and student focus groups (33). These data gathering activities were complemented by an analysis of a number of teacher-prepared learning activities (967) and range of student work samples (3,367). The schools in this multinational research collaboration were spread evenly across the seven countries (24 in each) and a mixture of innovative and traditional schools were selected.
