Report: Education Innovations in East Java, a review and analysis of INOVASI’s stocktake study

Tags:

This stocktake study contributes to INOVASI’s goal of improving student learning by providing stakeholders with a credible body of evidence of what does and does not work to improve the quality of schools and enhance learning outcomes for primary schoolchildren in East Java. The study illustrates INOVASI’s responsive approach to development where local stakeholders, in this case in East Java, identify problems and find solutions (good practices and innovations) to improve learning outcomes. The study uses an approach based on problem-driven iterative adaptation (PDIA) whereby, rather than accepting solutions mandated from the top, those on the ground identify problems and work to solve these problems by following a step-by-step process that permits flexible learning and adaptation.
The specific purposes and scope of this study were: to document good practices and innovations in primary schools in East Java; understand the context in which they were developed (and, in some cases, how they were adapted and sustained); and provide recommendations to district and municipal education offices concerning how further to discover, nurture and then implement whatever works best to improve student outcomes, especially in literacy and numeracy.
