9789264017733: Are New Millennium Learners Making the Grade?: Technology Use and Educational Performance in PISA


OECD countries have made significant investments to enhance the role of technology in education. Are these investments paying off? This book provides a summary of the most recent Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) survey, that relies on a wealth of comparative data to begin answering the question—including evidence on the availability and use of technology and the actual benefits accruing from it.


One of the most striking findings from PISA is that the digital divide in education goes beyond the access to technology. A new second form of digital divide is emerging between those who have the right competencies and skills to leverage computer use and those who do not. These competencies and skills are closely linked to the economic, cultural, and social capital of the student.


These findings have important implications for policy and practice. Governments should make an effort to ensure and reinforce computer education and use among young people and the development of 21st century competencies.

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.OECD countries have undertaken significant investments to enhance the role of technology in education. What are the results of these investments? Is technology investment in education fulfilling our expectations? PISA 2006 provides a wealth of comparative data to begin answering these questions, including evidence on the availability and use of technology and the actual benefits accruing from it.One of the most striking findings of this study is that the digital divide in education goes beyond the issue of access to technology. A new second form of digital divide has been identified: the one existing between those who have the right competencies to benefit from computer use, and those who do not. These competencies and skills are closely linked to the economic, cultural and social capital of the student.This finding has important implications for policy and practice. Governments should make an effort to clearly convey the message that computer use matters for the education of young people and do their best to engage teachers and schools in raising the frequency of computer use to a level that becomes relevant. If schools and teachers are really committed to the development of 21st century competencies, such an increase will happen naturally. And only in these circumstances will clear correlations between technology use and educational performance emerge. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9789264017733
