New Models of Collaboration Boost Ed Tech Impacts

K-12 schools are increasingly investing in educational technology to improve student learning and reduce achievement gaps. This panel brings together key partners in school-based ed tech initiatives—technology vendors, district personnel, nonprofit leaders and researchers—to discuss how new models of collaboration among the partners, in producing data and knowledge on effective technology integration, is increasing student technology use and achievement in low-resource educational settings.

Learning Objectives

  1. What types of collaborative arrangements between technology vendors and school districts sustain and increase technology use and its effectiveness?
  2. How can data/evidence produced in a researcher/school district/educational technology partnership be used to improve classroom technology use?
  3. What roles can nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations play in building school and instructor-level capacity for effective educational technology use?
