Ottawa: The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is continuing its research into Canada’s EdTech landscape. This research builds on ICTC’s recently released report Class, Take Out Your Tablets: The Impact of Technology on Learning and Teaching in Canada, which examines the development of innovative educational technologies and their impact on Canadian classrooms and communities.
The current phase of research extends the discussion to an evaluation of the benefits of technology for education, how technology is fundamentally changing the way students learn, and the way educators teach.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, technology-aided learning was considered a luxury that could unfold at a comfortable and methodical pace. Today, education has been thrust into unfamiliar territory, necessitating the evolution of educational policies in post-COVID-19 Canada.
“As the world continues to address the socioeconomic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, EdTech is destined to play a critical role in shaping tomorrow’s educational system in Canada. There is much to look forward to in this initiative as we explore the evolving digital learning models and their applications for students, teachers, and workers,” said Namir Anani, ICTC President & CEO.
This study will interview and showcase insights from Canadian educators, policymakers, and industry representatives discussing innovative approaches to technology implementation in education for lasting positive impacts on Canada and our digital economy.
