International innovation analysis reveals top countries’ practices
Measuring innovation is critical to effecting change and improvement in education–and in fact, knowing how practices impact education on an international scale could improve education across the globe, according to a new report that seeks to measure educational innovation.
The OECD report, Measuring Innovation in Education, compares educational innovation to innovation in other sectors, pinpoints specific examples of educational innovation, and also examines how changes in educational outcomes are related to educational innovation.
Why measure innovation? Part of it has to do with a recent push for what the report called the “innovation imperative” that is spreading through the public sector and public services in an attempt to boost economic performance and prosperity.
