Raffo, Carlo; Forbes, Claire – Oxford Review of Education, 2021

Selwyn, Neil – Oxford Review of Education, 2021
The past 20 years have seen the steady 'datafication' of school systems -- i.e. the rendering of key aspects of school practice into data that is digitally collected, processed and circulated.

The quest to improve teaching on a wide scale is an enduring challenge globally. Yet demonstrable improvement in teaching quality is both elusive and slow.
