Abstract

This E-book is a collection of outcome reports by thematic working groups (TWGs) of EDUsummIT2019 held from September 29 – October 2, 2019 in Quebec City, Canada. The theme of EDUsummIT2019, “Learners and learning contexts: new alignments for the digital age” was chosen to consider misalignments due to the consequences of changing knowledge representations, human computer interactions, blurring of formal and informal learning, changes in leadership patterns and many more emerging influences from IT. Thirteen TWGs discussed aspects of the overall theme

Additional Information: The International Handbook of Information Technology in Primary and Secondary Education (Voogt & Knezek, 2008) was the first synthesis of 40 years of research in information technology in primary and secondary education. The Handbook provided evidence that digital technologies have much potential for education as numerous chapters made clear, but the implementation in educational practice has lagged behind research evidence. This outcome was an important reason for the Handbook editors to organize a summit where key policy makers, practitioners and researchers in the field could meet to discuss this outcome and to work together to formulate and implement an agenda aimed at stimulating the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in primary and secondary education. The first EDUsummIT – the International Summit on ICT in Education - was held in 2009 in the Hague (The Netherlands) and was organized with support of Kennisnet (The Netherlands), the International Society of technology in Education (ISTE, USA) and BECTA (UK). Approximately 70 researchers, policymakers, and practitioners spanning six continents attended. The first EDUsummIT resulted in concrete action steps in the form of a Call to Action. EDUsummIT has as its mission statement: EduSummIT is a global community of policy-makers, researchers, and educators working together to move education into the digital age. The EDUsummIT community recognizes the need to respond to the challenges of a world transformed by globalization and economic transformation, caused to a large degree by the development of digital networking technologies. The EDUsummIT seeks to engage educational leaders from across the world in conversations framed around issues and challenges facing education today and through that dialog, develop action items that are based on research evidence. Since 2009 five subsequent EDUsummITs have been held, in 2011 in Paris, France; in 2013 in Washington, D.C., USA; in 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand; in 2017 in Borovets, Bulgaria in 2017 and in 2019 in Quebec City, Canada. The seventh EDUsummIT is planned for Kyoto, Japan in 2021. The number of participants attending has varied between 70 and 150.
