Transforming Education for the Next Generation: A Practical Guide to Learning and Teaching with Technology

Around the world, digital technologies are demonstrating their ability to empower educators in their mission of developing the next generation of lifelong learners, innovators, and global citizens. With an e ective technology foundation and the right support, teachers gain powerful tools to deepen, accelerate, and enhance student learning. Students can research, create, communicate, and collaborate in ways that better prepare them for the world, the workforce, or higher education. School systems can base critical plan- ning decisions on a deep, evidence-based understanding of how to improve learning and teaching.

Educational technology initiatives also bring risks, however. Achieving the promise of technology requires more than simply deploying devices. If initiatives focus too much on technology and not enough on compel- ling usages that improve learning and teaching, the results will be disappointing. Transformative initiatives result from holistic e orts that bring about changes in professional learning, curricular planning, assessment and evaluation, policy frameworks, and more. Poorly planned initiatives can waste time and money, widen inequity, expose private data, reduce con dence in the education system, and delay the potential bene ts. Even well-designed initiatives can fall apart if they depend on a single charismatic leader who moves on, or if funding evaporates.

In a time of limited resources and competing budget priorities, it’s vitally important to ensure that investments in technology are successful and sustainable—and that they deliver the value they promise. This guidebook
is designed to help. It describes a holistic model that starts from a vision of student success and addresses
the broad range of elements needed to produce transformative change. Successful students will in turn drive economic development. This guidebook shares insights, perspectives, and practical strategies from education leaders and visionaries around the world, along with tips, tactics, and case studies drawn from Intel’s work with teachers, education systems, and governments in over 100 countries.
