Time for a New Approach to Innovation in Technology Enhanced Learning?

  1. 1. Presenter: Anthony F. Camilleri (EFQUEL) Paper Contributors: Fabio Nasimbeni (MENON Network), Claudio Dondi (SCIENTER), Ulf Ehlers (EFQUEL), Carmen L. Padron-Napoles (ATOS Innovation) Time for a New Approach to Innovation in Technology Enhanced Learning?
  2. 2. HOTEL: Holistic Technology Enhanced Learning • FP7 Support Action • Oct 2012 – Sept 2014 • Consortium
  3. 3. Issues addressed by HOTEL • TEL research so far focused mostly on technologies developed «ad- hoc» for learning • Bottom up innovation in TEL not yet sufficiently considered by research (input to learning theories) • Impact of available learning theories on TEL practices not sufficiently analysed Need for working paradigms on how to support innovation and mainstreaming
  4. 4. • To design an innovation support model to speed up mainstreaming; • To pilot the designed innovation cycle in three real life environments (Learning Exploratorium Labs on Higher Education, Workplace and Individual Professional Learning); • To disseminate and create awareness in the research and practice community about the results of HOTEL; • To help FP7 projects to identify new challenges and include TEL projects in the Labs, where relevant; • To ensure sustainability and multiplication of HOTEL by providing to TEL actors and stakeholders a validated shortened Innovation Cycle for TEL. The HOTEL objectives
  5. 5. The HOTEL workplan
  6. 6. • Report attempts comprehensive list of emerging technologies, grouped into clusters. Emerging Technologies Landscape • Web 2.0 based tools and systems • Ubiquitous computing • Augmented reality • Access-to-content related technologies • Human computer interaction • Learning analytics • Games and virtual worlds • Environments and technologies for collaboration • Semantic-aware systems • Personalised, adaptive technologies • Other technologies • Networks of excellence • Each technology analysed in terms of relevance to education, and time/barriers to mainstream adoption
  7. 7. • Why do so many research projects into technology fail to provide sustainable results? (over 50 surveyed) • What is missing from the typical Research  Develop  Pilot  Disseminate  Valorise methodology? • How can we improve things (support action)? Unofficial Research Question
  8. 8. http://www.winsite.com/graphics/icons/sqakki-com-innovationprocess-41183.gif Contextualising within the Innovation Process
  9. 9. PLAN the innovation testing process ACT implement the innovation testing process REVIEW The whole set of processes in view of their further development ASSESS the results of the process 2 years The HOTEL ambition

  13. 13. • Public call for innovators via the HOTEL website • C. 60 applications received – 21 to be tested to be tested conceptually, and 9 to be tested ‘live’ Scouting Grassroot Innovators grassroots implementation scope size of idea-generator degree of actual change not due to impact potential
  14. 14. • Lab 1: Learning in Higher Education – hosted by UNIR university (La Rioja) • Lab 2: Learning at Work – hosted by UNIR • Lab 3: Learning in Professional Networks – hosted by EFQUEL Each lab will serve as a live test-bed for testing and implementing innovations and the support model itself Innovation Labs

  16. 16. Testing Adoption / Diffusion Potential Step 1: Classify cases in terms of learning-theories:
  17. 17. Testing Adoption / Diffusion Potential Step 2: Collect information on target groups, and intended aims Step 3: Analyse these in terms of needs / problems addressed and potential impact Step 4: Assess Innovativeness – cross with emerging technologies map
  18. 18. • Stakeholder Panel to Assess Innovation • Innovator Panel to Assess Innovation Analysing Perceived Characteristics of the Innovation Criteria: • relative advantage: how is it better than the existing method in terms of potential for learning? • efficiency: does it achieve the same learning with fewer resources? • complexity: how difficult is it to understand / interface with pedagogical norms • startup difficulty: how hard is it to implement within the context of existing systems • scalability: how easy is it to deploy across educational systems?
  19. 19. Desired Outcomes Our Innovation Support Model, after several iterations should: • Provide an analytical framework to classify innovations, and properly understand their advantage/contribution within a pedagogical context • Assist decision-makers/funders to pick ‘winners’ • Help innovators to: • properly formulate their ideas in a way which aids introduction • highlight lacunae in their diffusion/adoption strategies • assist them in developing indicators to improve their diffusion/adoption • OVERALL: Accelerate mainstreaming of technologies into education
