Chicken or Egg: Examining EdTech Efficacy Research

Over $13 billion are spent annually on edtech products designed to improve teaching and learning, yet rarely is there underlying evidence proving efficacy. Education stakeholders often agree that efficacy research is needed, but few have the resources, time, or capacity to invest in it. Join a diverse group of education stakeholders to discuss the importance of (and barriers to investment in) efficacy research, and what is needed to make a systemic shift towards evidence-based decision-making.

Learning Objectives

  1. Attendees will be able to describe why edtech efficacy research is important.
  2. Attendees will be able to identify barriers to investment in efficacy research.
  3. Attendees will be able to outline changes needed to shift towards evidence-based decision-making in edtech.
