This series of reports explores new forms of teaching, learning, and assessment for an interactive world, to guide teachers and policy makers in productive innovation. This eighth report proposes ten innovations that are already in currency but have not yet had a profound influence on education. To produce the report, a group of academics at The Open University’s Institute of Educational Technology (UK) collaborated with researchers from the National Institute for Digital Learning at Dublin City University. We proposed a long list of new educational concepts, terms, theories, and practices and pared them down to ten that have the potential to provoke major shifts in educational practice. Lastly, we drew on published and unpublished writings to compile the ten sketches of new pedagogies that might transform education. These are summarised below in approximate order of immediacy and timescale to widespread implementation.
