Track 9. Educational innovation

Rationale

The development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is gradually questioning traditional teaching methods and learning strategies in educational institutions. The incorporation of highly valued skills in today’s Society such as information management, self-regulated learning or collaborative work in virtual environments is promoting this change.

Besides, many studies have demonstrated that the use of technological teaching resources, more interactive than print media, favors class dynamics and students’ learning, motivation and engagement.

However, the possibilities offered by ICT are not always taken into consideration for designing and developing new curricula. ICT uses will basically depend on teachers’ methodology, the interest of the proposed activities, the goals explicitness, the resources, and the time/space management.

Therefore, it is necessary to complement the educational innovation processes with a rigorous assessment of students’ performance, without losing sight, especially at the university level, that changes and social demands require strong specialization as well as flexibility to adapt to circumstances, solve problems and work collaboratively.

The aim of this track is to gather experiences and research outcomes about the innovative educational practices that have been developing in recent years, both in Elementary Education and Higher Education.
