De OESO brengt regelmatig kleinere rapporten uit, naast de bekende rapporten zoals PISA, TALIS, PIAAC,… Die kleinere focusrapporten zijn vaak wel gebaseerd op data van die grotere. Een recente Teaching in Focus gaat over het invoeren van ICT in het secundair onderwijs tijdens en na Corona.
Wat zijn de belangrijkste inzichten:
- Based on TALIS data collected prior to the pandemic, an average of 43% of upper secondary school teachers feel somewhat underprepared in using ICT in their teaching.
- Experienced teachers are even less comfortable with ICT. The share of upper secondary school teachers who feel comfortable with ICT is about 8% lower for teachers with more than five years of experience than for less experienced teachers.
- However, upper secondary school teachers let their students use ICT more frequently for their projects and class work – average of 60% – than lower secondary school teachers (at 55%).
- An average of 18% of upper secondary school teachers urgently need professional development to better integrate ICT into their teaching.
Let wel TALIS werd afgenomen voor Corona.
Maar er is ook deze waarschuwing:
Teacher training in ICT usage and instruction at the collective and official level is key to a successful transition from an old to a new educational system. But efforts and careful analysis will be needed to ensure that the training actually increases teacher preparedness and meets their educational demands. Without proper implementation, ICT use may not only be ineffective but have a negative impact on teaching and learning.
Ik denk dat deze opmerking terecht is, maar dat er nog meer zaken zijn die best niet vergeten worden.
