The research methodology context

The Research Methodology Context

The key findings about the quality and impact of the Intel Teach Program come from data that has been collected and analyzed by the Center for Children and Technology from its two global surveys: the End of Training survey and the Annual Impact survey.

End of Training survey

End of Training Survey

This survey, conducted once training is complete, is designed to capture teachers’ perceptions of the quality of the training and assess how well it prepares them to use what they have learned in their classrooms. The report provides a summary of the results.

Annual Impact survey

Annual Impact Survey

This survey collects two types of data: data about the extent to which program participants have incorporated what they learned into their actual classroom practices, and data about participants’ access to technology in their schools.

White Paper: Jumpstarting 21st Century Learning (PDF, 1.9 MB)
Researchers have established a definitive causal link between a school system’s engage­ment of K12 students in higher order thinking and complex problem solving with higher economic viability. Thus, it is imperative that educators’ practices shift toward deeper en­gagement of students in relevant, intellectually stimulating challenges.

Report: Ten Years of Evaluation: Intel® Education Initiatives (PDF, 452 KB)
For over a decade, Intel‘s philanthropic educational initiatives have provided millions of teachers and students around the globe some of their first experiences with the principles and practices of progressive education. By virtue of Intel‘s programming, for example, teachers have developed lesson plans for implementing project-based learning, teens have created multimedia presentations on social issues that matter to them, student groups have discovered ways of representing content-specific data and ideas using novel online tools, and school administrators have assessed learning outcomes based on rubrics applied to student-designed products instead of tests focused on information recall.

White Paper: Preparing Future Teachers for 21st Century Learning: Partnerships that enhance the capacity of pre-service education (PDF, 186 KB)
This paper focuses on a pre-service program designed to equip future teachers for their role in preparing students to live in a changing world. It draws from a three-year study of the Intel® Teach Program Essentials Course, pre-service curriculum, conducted by evaluation teams in 10 Asia Pacific countries and coordinated by Deakin University, Australia. In particular, it highlights the positive impact of the Essentials Course on teacher education institutions, teacher educators, pre-service teachers, and new teachers who completed the program during their pre-service training. It also identifies the factors that underpin success.
