Practitioner Perspective: Finding Edtech Efficacy
With so much money being spent on education technology, foundations and research organizations are continually investigating what works. However, practitioners in schools are constantly redesigning new instructional strategies and cannot wait for the long-term studies and results. In this interactive discussion, the audience will engage with district/CMO edtech leaders to grapple with the complex, yet seductive goal of determining efficacy all while still keeping practicality in mind.
