Schools have been hit by a technological explosion they were not ready for

Our nation’s education system is fragmented into more than 13,000 school districts that collectively spend more than $20B per year on edtech — without understanding what works, where, why, or under which conditions.

School districts spend on education technology without understanding the context of what works where, and why..

Our schools lack access to this information in part because of what economists call a collective action problem. Every school wishes that every other school would carefully document and share their experiences with edtech — including lessons learned the hard way.

..while providing our educators with little to no information about what works where and why.

No individual school has incentive to do that work itself. And as a result, the information we all need to make better decisions remains trapped in the heads of millions of educators. As a result, our 13,000+ school districts struggle to make effective decisions about which technologies to procure, and how to most effectively implement them.

This is both inexcusable and fixable.

We’re tackling this challenge with a new, collaborative approach

With the support of philanthropy, the EdTech Evidence Exchange was born for the purpose of building a system to give educators the incentive and support they need to thoroughly document their experiences with education technology, so that we can all learn from each other.



New tools, new insights

In Fall 2021, we will launch version 1.0 of our EdTech Evidence Exchange platform through which we pay cash stipends to thousands of educators who carefully document their work using the new instruments developed through our sector-wide EdTech Genome Project and in partnership with our research team at the University of Virginia.



We are working to solve this collective problem.
