Self-reflection on Effective Learning by Fostering the use of Innovative Educational technologies
SELFIE (Self-reflection on Effective Learning by Fostering the use of Innovative Educational technologies) is a free tool designed to help schools embed digital technologies into teaching, learning and assessment. SELFIE has a strong basis in research and was developed based on the European Commission framework on promoting digital-age learning in educational organisations.
SELFIE anonymously gathers the views of students, teachers and school leaders on how technology is used in their school. This is done using short statements and questions and a simple 1-5 answer scale. The questions and statements take around 20 minutes to complete.
Based on this input, the tool generates a report – a snapshot (‘SELFIE’ :-)) of a school‘s strengths and weaknesses in their use of technology.
SELFIE is available for any primary, secondary and vocational schools in Europe and beyond, and in over 30 languages. It can be used by any school – not just those with advanced levels of infrastructure, equipment and technology use.
SELFIE involves the whole school community – school leaders, teachers and students – in a 360-degree process covering many areas of school practice.
Because every school is unique, the tool can be customised. Your school can select and add questions and statements to suit your needs.
SELFIE allows all participants to answer questions that match their experience, as students, teachers or school leaders.
SELFIE is free of charge. Answers are anonymised and data is secure.
You can take the assessment from a computer, tablet or smartphone.
On completing SELFIE, each school receives a tailor-made, interactive report which provides both in-depth data and quick insights into strengths and weaknesses.
