Recommendation 2 Research framework
Recommendation 2. We recommend that the Government develop an improved research framework to ensure that educational policies are informed by current research thinking and future-focused thinking in the digital area. In developing the research framework, adequate consideration should be given to ensuring that New Zealand research is shared throughout the country and with international research programmes.
Comment: There are already many university staff doing research in education. What is needed is a clear statement of the research goals and funding that permits the research to be done on site with active educators and students at all levels.
