ITL_Research_design_29_Sept_09_CoverThis paper describes the design of Innovative Teaching and Learning (ITL) Research, a new multi-year program to investigate the factors that promote technology-supported educational reform within and across diverse country contexts. The research uses mixed methods to collect data across all levels in the system, but focuses in particular on teaching and learning in the classroom. A method of analyzing artifacts of actual classroom practice in the form of samples of learning activities and student work is used to characterize the degree to which 21st century skills are being encouraged and learned. The study will make use of parallel case studies in 4 countries in its pilot year (2009-10), and will look across them to investigate global research questions.
