Empowering Educator Voice through Edtech Pilots

Through Digital Promise's evaluation capacity-building work, we have flipped the table on edtech selection and adoption by empowering those closest to learners--teachers--to ask and answer important questions about student experiences. By equipping teachers with the skills and tools needed to understand which tools work best, in which context, and for whom, classrooms will move closer to truly personalizing learning and fulfilling the promise of technology to close persistent achievement gaps.
