|The sixth Global Education Monitoring Report, Technology in education: A tool on whose terms? was released this morning alongside with 20 background papers and more than 200 PEER country profiles on laws and policies on technology in education.
The report states that regulations for technology set outside of the education sector will not necessarily cover education’s needs. The focus should be on learning outcomes, not digital inputs. To help improve learning, digital technology should be not a substitute for but a complement to face-to-face interaction with teachers.
It is released alongside with a #TechOnOurTerms campaign, calling for decisions about technology in education to prioritize learner needs after assessing whether its application would be appropriate, equitable, evidence-based and sustainable.
