We can cost technology in schools, but how do we measure its value, especially when cost is questioned? 


How can we help others to manage change by recognising and valuing the educational benefits such as:

  • information and pedagogy (higher order thinking skills and IT capabilities that can be applied across the curriculum to a range of different problems and contexts);
  • enabling high quality teaching and learning;
  • positive, transactional, transformative school improvement.


This session investigates an approach to measuring the value of educational technology in schools using a study method developed in Australia and the USA and applied in Canberra, England, California, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and Portugal.


The approach surveys the capabilities of teachers, the vision and value proposition of the school, the views of staff and students and the Gartner Group total cost of ownership model provided by CoSN.
