Critical Insights for K-12 Education Technology Pros

Data-Driven Decision-Making

  • It Is All in the Data

    As the title of one of the features in the October issue of T.H.E. Journal suggests, we're "Swimming in Data." The story examines the question of how much data you really need to make some informed decisions about student achievement. But that's not the only time the concept of data and its significance in education comes up in this issue.

  • Swimming With Data

    How much data does a district really need to make informed decisions about student achievement? Not that much, it turns out, but districts likely can’t do it alone.

  • Map Quests

    GIS technologies allow students to tackle real-world issues while developing critical thinking skills. And, as the work of the students and teachers in Virginia who participate in James Madison University's Geospatial Semester program seems to indicate, it might just revolutionize project-based learning in K-12 schools.



  • The Long (Inexpensive) Bus Ride Home

    In a challenging economic environment, school districts are looking for ways to manage their transportation costs, reduce carbon footprints, and maintain student safety. Technology, including global positioning systems and software, is leading the effort.


Game Creation
