Connecting educators to contexts for a better learning experience

We are addressing a national problem at a local level by working with state and regional agencies to ensure that funds are being spent to maximize student performance and help educators with their edtech purchasing decisions.

80%

86%

of educators believe technology needs will increase or significantly increase over the next 3 years.

$25B+

estimated dollars wasted on edtech each year.

 

What we do

Educators do not have spare time to test edtech products through trial and error–that’s where we come in. Take a 30 minute survey, and in return learn from educators in contexts like yours about what edtech is most likely going to work for you and your students.

Data collection and analysis

Let us help you measure the context in which educators work by collecting data from a representative sample of educators. Using our instruments, these educators will systematically document their experiences implementing education technology in their specific contexts, and our research team will analyze the results.
