Abstract: This roundtable will discuss the development of four aspects for new indicators that compare how information technology is being used in classrooms across the world: 1) evolving mission, methods and core principles of information and communication technology (ICT) in learning and teaching; 2) nature of ICT in education in accelerating the emergence of new learner-centered pedagogies; 3) types of learning activities associated with the use of ICT including those for leaders, teachers and students; and 4) usage and deployment patterns.
