Valuation of Emerging Learning Solutions – Perspectives from Four Countries

Abstract

Last decade has been a period of strong and rapid development of information and communication technology (ICT). However, schools have not adopted ICT for use at teaching and learning according to the available possibilities for ICT access. It has been indicated that students are in rather unequal situation in regard of 21st century learning enhanced with modern technology. This poster presents efforts to make technology-based learning solutions as an integral part of teaching and learning and to promote 21st century learning with the aid of systemic learning solutions. The poster describes an ongoing large-scale project “Systemic Learning Solutions (SysTech)”- so called value network project – which aims at collaborative efforts between researchers, companies, and educational institutions for the design and effective use of learning solutions. The project originated from the desire to refine and spread out the teaching practices, innovative ICT concepts, and procedures as learning solutions and services that can support educational institutions. The project develops a cyclical process model for the development of learning solutions in a multi-field value network among seven participating countries. The poster focuses on the experiences and developments of the value network in Finland and its partner countries in Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea.
