Conceptual/Research Synthesis for Ontario’s Technology and Learning Fund Report

By Chris Dede and Kim Frumin, Harvard Graduate School of Education

The Conceptual/Research Synthesis for Ontario’s Technology and Learning Fund Report looks closely at Ontario’s evolving, multi-phased 21st Century Teaching and Learning Strategy which builds upon strong, positive and collaborative relations between the Ministry of Education and education leaders in District School Boards. With an emphasis on supports for capacity building and knowledge mobilization, as a means for supporting teachers and school and system leaders, boards are shifting their practices to integrate promising innovations that make a demonstrable difference for student engagement, learning, achievement, and success.

The Dede/Frumin research synthesis provides helpful and interesting insights into how the 21st Century Teaching and Learning Strategy is accomplishing this significant change in Ontario education, and describes illustrative conceptual frameworks and scholarly findings that support Ontario’s evolving, multi-phased 21st Century Teaching and Learning Strategy.
