Designing 21st century learning environments  Innovation is a key element of today’s societies and economies, and that includes how we learn. Much has been written about innovation in education, but what does it really mean in practice in terms of content, organisation of learning, roles of teachers, etc.? How does one design a powerful learning environment that enables students to thrive in the 21st century?
 
 
 

 

Education at a Glance 2013: OECD Indicators is the authoritative source for accurate and relevant information on the state of education  around the world.

Diverging levels of research efficiency change the global landscape of innovation (Dirk Van Damme, Head of the Innovation and Measuring Progress division, Directorate for Education and Skills)

Skills for the digital economy  - Digital economies are powered by skills. People with the high-end skills needed to invent and apply new technologies are in high demand the world over.

  OECD Education Today… and tomorrow (Barbara Ischinger, Director for Education) - If you want to know what we’ve been doing over the past year or so, I invite you to take a look at the latest edition of Education Today. It covers the most important results and policy recommendations that have emerged from our work in early childhood education, compulsory schooling, higher education and lifelong learning. It also discusses such overarching topics as equity of opportunity, the benefits of education, and innovation.
  Education Today 2013 - The OECD Perspective - What does the OECD have to say about the state of education today? What are the main OECD messages on early childhood education, teacher policies and tertiary education? What about student performance, educational spending and equity in education? OECD work on these important education topics and others have been brought together in a single accessible source updating the first edition of Education Today which came out in March 2009.
  The more the merrier.  Who is responsible for successes and failures of schools? A new Education Working Paper says  involving parents and students can help improve education systems by including them in accountability and school achievement processes.
  Hooked to be connected! Concerned parents are becoming more and more anxious as they watch their bright children getting completely absorbed by and attached to new mobile devices.  Young people’s attachment to digital media and connectivity will shortly reach a level of almost universal saturation.

Innovative Workplaces: Making Better Use of Skills within Organisations. As human capital is the source of innovation, one of the policy principles of the OECD Innovation Strategy is to "foster innovative workplaces".
