This working paper identifies OECD countries’ interests in digital innovation in education by analysing their policy papers on digital education.
Many OECD countries have adopted a specific strategy on digital education, or integrated the topic in a generic strategy on digital innovation as such. The ideas that are expressed in the strategies differ greatly; some are work in progress, others contain bold envisions of the future. There is a high awareness among OECD countries of the benefits of digitalisation, and the role of government to support digital innovation in education.
This paper covers and documents countries’ policy focus before the 2020 coronavirus crisis.
