How Do We Know What Works? Re-Imagining the #EdTech Ecosystem w @KatrinaStevens1 #inacol15

I snatched up the opportunity to hear from Katrina Stevens in this session. Always awesome to have the chance to see her talk about the important, meaningful change she’s working to make happen!

As we prepare our schools to be Future Ready, we need effective tools in our schools to support this work. Currently, many school leaders make decisions about the educational technology they integrate into their schools based primarily on peer recommendations or sometimes on the word of great salespeople. There’s a growing movement to shift towards more evidence-based decision making, and the recent work done on rapid cycle technology evaluations shows promise of one avenue for providing more contextualized information about whatÍs working in specific contexts.

Some notes and resources storfied here…
