Impact of public authorities and educational technology on development of professional digital competence in teacher education and schools

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Ever since Norway started to digitalize schools, the rationality has been tools first, pedagogical user know-how second. In the discussion about the biggest challenges in digitalizing of schools, a common line of argumentation has been that the problem is not access to technology, but what teachers, on all levels, can do to make sure that the technology available brings pedagogical value added. For a decade or two, that discussion was a good deal less audible in teacher education (TE), but has lately started to incorporate them, too. Without challenging this argument, in this study we take a different stance: Our point of departure is that availability of and access to technology in general, and the kind of technology in particular, do matter to development of professional digital competence, in schools as well as in TE. From this perspective, it is the decision making (policies and practice) regarding educational technology (edtech) procurement on both contexts that plays a pivotal role for the leaders’ room of manoeuvre in facilitation of relevant competence development. Our research question is: how does management in TE and schools evaluate the impact of public authorities and educational technology (providers) on development of professional digital competence (PDC)? Many factors especially in public but also in private sector have an effect on development of PDC of teachers. The actualization and relative weight of these factors in competence development, are mediated by management decisions, in TE and schools. Thus, we shall explore how management (those with decision-making power regarding edtech procurement) in TE and schools, view the relative and factual impact of the two type of factors. The pilot study will bring new knowledge in the fields of development of teachers’ PDC and governance of digital development in education. Our hypothesis specifically concerns the direct and indirect impact of management’s decision-making regarding edtech procurements, thus adding the effect of private sector, and private-public collaboration to the traditional view of sole public authorities’ responsibility to this end. The 12-month pilot project will be implemented in 2020, mainly as a qualitative interview study, in collaboration between five institutions in UH-NettVest: UiS (coord), NLA, HVL, UiB, and HiVo. The partners have complementary competence and experience in regards the research question, to implement the project with high quality. The findings will be published as an article in an international scientific journal and a summary in Norwegian. Funding for a main project will be sought from the Research Council (NFR) in 2020. The pilot will also be related to EU- and Nordic applications by UiS.
