The text explores the concept of innovation, and analyse and compare different dimensions of innovation found in the various case studies; the transfer of innovation and the mechanisms of change; on an innovative online case study database on education innovations that has been designed to be used by education practitioners to support organizational leadership, international collaboration and reflective practice in the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) eEducation Leadership initiative; on a project aimed to support the establishment of communities of practice for education practitioners facilitated through an extendable online database that can be used to contribute and share case studies of their own ICT-supported pedagogical innovations.

From the Back Cover:

Providing today’s students with competitive skills―information literacy, problem-solving, communications―is an ongoing challenge requiring multiple levels of classroom and administrative support. Yet many institutions commit to technology initiatives without clear long-term goals or support structures, with the result that ideas that seem worthwhile in theory have scant effect on learning outcomes. Referencing numerous case studies from developed and developing countries, Educational Innovations beyond Technology examines the successful implementation of information and communication technology (ICT), not only in terms of test scores and classroom results, but also the creative and visionary strategies and practices of teachers, administrators, and policymakers in bringing about system-wide ICT-based change. ICT is demonstrated as both a sustaining and a transformative technology, simultaneously improving and redefining educational practice in these and other salient areas: · Student and teacher roles in the ICT-supported classroom. · Pedagogical practice, technology use, and teacher competence. · Contextual conditions of innovative schools. · Challenges of sustainability and transferability. · Methods of scaling up and transferring innovative practices in varied environments. · Leadership and change mechanisms at the school and system-wide levels. The ideas and insights in Educational Innovations Beyond Technology will inspire professionals in education and related fields, including teachers and teacher educators, instructional designers and technology coordinators, principals and administrators, and education policymakers. Researchers studying educational change, comparative educational methods, and technology integration will also find much of interest in this unique volume.
