Published by Andreas Meiszner
As part of the Learning@Work Exploratorium Lab that is run by the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG) within the FP7 funded HoTEL research project we have been running a joint ELIG / Pearson interactive Learnshop that aimed at critically reflecting on how to innovate in a profoundly changing education ecosystem.

A key focus on this Learnshop had been to further advance on the question of how the Pearson efficacy framework might be best scoped, structured and contextualized [e.g. as a part of a larger model] so as to foster its usefulness and applicability as a tool to support TEL for individuals / institutions, through the practical application of the framework with real-life ‘cases’

This document provides an overview on the Learnshop structure and might be of use to those that intend to organize similar activities.

*** How to Guide Innovation in a Changing Education Ecosystem
This interactive Learnshop aims critically to reflect how to innovate in a profoundly changing education ecosystem. What are the opportunities for innovation within emerging lifelong and life-wide multi-stakeholder and multi-sided ecosystems? Join the panel of experts addressing this challenge in this Learnshop, organised as part of the
EU FP7 funded HoTEL project „HOlistic approach to Technology
-
Enhanced Learning‟. The overall
objective of the project is to design, develop and test a support model for innovation in the area of technology-enhanced learning.
Facilitators Background
The HOTEL (Holistic Approach to Technology Enhanced Learning) project originates from the observation that most of the TEL research so far has concentrated mainly on the development of ad hoc technologies for learning, failing to capture both the potential adoption of emerging technologies not originally designed for learning in education and training environments and the innovative use that is made of technologies in non-formal and informal ways of learning and the extent to which this could be transferred / adapted to formal learning environments. This is believed by the Consortium to provide a misleading and fragmented picture of the extent to which new forms of using technologies (already mainstreamed and/or successfully piloted and/or emerging) support learning. Innovative practices in the use of technologies for learning (especially in non-formal and informal learning environments) are often not sufficiently considered by research whereas bottom-up innovation is playing an increasingly important role in the field of TEL, which might lead to new theories for learning. On the other hand, there is a need to verify the impact of existing learning theories on TEL practices to determine whether Andreas Meiszner

3 this has led / is leading to innovation. Furthermore, the lack of a holistic approach in TEL as described above puts at risk the effectiveness and mainstreaming of new ways of using ICT for learning purposes: too often the timespan between the identification of technologies that have a potential for learning, the theoretical analysis of pedagogical implications, the piloting of such technologies and their adoption (first at small scale and then mainstreamed) is so long that the technology itself becomes out-dated compared to the changing environment and learning needs.
Pearson‟s Efficacy
Framework would be tested as a [e.g. stand-alone] means to support the different stakeholders to innovate in TEL / education. ELIG and Pearson have been working together to design a learnshop that would foster the hands-on experience of using the efficacy framework with test cases of technological innovations in order to examine: i.
 
Whether new innovations necessarily support learning enhancement ii.
 
The impact of existing learning theories on TEL practices to determine whether this has led / is leading to innovation Existing knowledge through the Alive in the Swamp study can be leveraged to provide
 Though the study had a K-12 focus, it might still be well suited to provide some general guidance and transversal (high-level) criteria / aspects that would apply to any type of education, and particularly in regards to digital innovations.
Our recommendation is that the “Alive in the Swamp” document is
summarised in an outline form, with the facilitators to use some of the key questions of the innovation index as stimuli for discussion when facilitating the use of the efficacy framework in practice and to ensure a more specific and targeted steer for discussions.
Objectives
1.
 
We want to further advance on the question of how the efficacy framework might be best scoped, structured and contextualized [e.g. as a part of a larger model] so as to foster its usefulness and applicability as a tool to support TEL for individuals / institutions, through the practical application of the framework with real-
life „cases‟ 
 2.
 
For attendees the learnshop would provide the opportunity: a.
 
To acquaint themselves with the efficacy framework as a tool to engender learning-focused discussions when assessing and evaluating prospective innovations b.
 
To be involved at the input phase of the project, allowing for feedback provided on evaluating the efficacy framework as a support model to be incorporated into future iterative decisions of the holistic model c.
 
To examine their own
 „case‟ (or a sample case) through the lens of a rigorous and
structured framework, providing the participant key takeaways at both the transversal and individual case level
