About EDUsummIT
This ebook is a collection of summary reports of the thematic working groups (TWGs) of
EDUsummIT 2015. EDUsummIT (International Summit on ICT in Education) is a global
knowledge building community of researchers, educational practitioners, and policy
makers committed to supporting the effective integration of research and practice in the
field of ICT in education. EDUsummIT was founded in 2009 to extend and further
develop the work undertaken by the authors of the International Handbook of
Information Technology in Primary and Secondary Education, edited by Joke Voogt and
Gerald Knezek (2008). Since its inception, EDUsummIT has been held four times, firstly in
the Hague (2009), then Paris (2011), Washington D.C. (2013), and most recently, in
Bangkok (2015). Between 70 and 140 participants from six continents have attended
EDUsummIT meetings. While EDUsummIT participants meet biennially, thematic groups
focusing on pertinent research topics in ICT and education are formed prior to
EDUsummIT to prepare discussion papers. These papers are further developed during
EDUsummIT. After each EDUsummIT, TWG findings are published in international
journals and presented at major conferences.
EDUsummITs are organised in association with international and national organisations
actively supporting the use of information technology in education. These organisations
include the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education (SITE), the
International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Kennisnet (Netherlands), the
International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 3.3 (Research
into Educational Applications of Information Technologies), the Association of Teacher
Educators (ATE), the Teacher Development and Higher Education Division at UNESCO,
and UNESCO Bangkok.

EDUsummIT 2015 was co-­‐hosted by UNESCO Bangkok (the Asia and Pacific regional
bureau of UNESCO) and Curtin University, and sponsored by Blackboard. The theme of
EDUsummIT 2015, Technology Advanced Quality Learning For All, had a special focus on
the integration of digital technologies in education in Asia-­‐Pacific countries. Several
UNESCO Bangkok ICT specialists joined the TWGs as policy advisors.
David Gibson (Curtin University) and Kwok-­‐Wing Lai (University of Otago) co-­‐chaired
EDUsummIT 2015, and a steering committee (refer Appendix 1) was set up to oversee its
operation. Planning began in May 2014, with its first meeting hosted by the University of
Canterbury, New Zealand. The second meeting was a site visit in Bangkok, hosted by
………
which was held at the SITE conference in Las Vegas in March 2015. The planning
committee communicated regularly with TWG leaders via email and video-­‐conferencing.

A Google community was set up for leaders to discuss EDUsummIT business and a
website (http://www.curtin.edu.au/edusummit/) was created to publicise EDUsummIT
2015 and archive it documents.
Nine thematic working groups (TWG) were formed in the beginning of 2015 (refer
Appendix 2 for a list of participants). These groups included:
TWG1: Smart partnerships
TWG2: Advancing mobile learning in formal and informal settings
TWG3: Professional development for policy makers, school leaders and teachers
TWG4: Addressing gaps and promoting educational equity
TWG5: Assessment as, for, and of learning in the 21st century
TWG6: Creativity in a technology enhanced curriculum
TWG7: Indicators of quality technology-­‐enhanced teaching and learning
TWG8: Digital citizenship and cyberwellness
TWG9: Curriculum -­‐ advancing understanding of the roles of CS/Informatics in the
curriculum
Focusing on their respective themes, the TWGs started researching and developing their
discussion and policy papers from February 2015. The TWGs were guided by the
following questions: ……
