Digital learning for development of Asian schools

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters


This chapter identifies various research foci within the region and, based on a meta-analysis of empirical research, assesses the effectiveness of intelligent tutoring systems developed or deployed in the regions. It analyses using a coding framework with four dimensions, namely the research contextual dimension, the methodological dimension, the game dimension and the outcome dimension. The chapter focuses on three general technical approaches to Learning analytics and provides case examples of how these have been applied by educational researchers from Asia. Government and non-governmental organizations have perceived and embraced digital technologies as a vehicle for change across different sectors in Asian economies and particularly in the developing countries. More research is needed that creates and tests 'proven models' of digital learning in Asian schools and deepens their understanding of the conditions that are necessary and sufficient for success. And this research needs to build on the research that has already been done in the region and worldwide. Copyright © 2018 selection and editorial matter, Kerry J.
