Education needs to be evidence-informed

Jennifer Buckingham, Financial Review

Innovation is always on the agenda in education but the pandemic in 2020 made it a top priority. Many schools made a swift and more or less successful transition to online teaching.  Innovative methodologies can be simple and powerful. The schools that did so most successfully were largely those that were already high functioning, with strong collaborative teaching cultures and robust systems in place. The widespread adoption of technology for teaching was not a disruptive force that changed the traditional stratifications in education systems. Education still needs to be evidence-informed. Innovation is not an excuse to disregard everything we know about effective teaching and learning. Otherwise, doing something is not better than doing nothing.
