A growing body of research is now available that shows many of the ed-tech tools schools invest in are simply not used extensively, and in numerous cases, not at all. An analysis by BrightBytes found that a median of 30 percent of the ed-tech licenses purchased by K-12 districts are never used. That is a troubling and confusing reality for educators at all levels. This session will examine what constitutes a low usage rate and what steps schools should take to raise those rates.
