EdTech Evaluation in Practice: More Evidence, Better Decisions, Improved Student Outcomes
Edtech solutions can have significant impact on student outcomes–but understanding whether the tools your district is investing in are producing the academic returns you’re hoping for can be a challenge. How can district leaders get answers to tough questions about where edtech budget dollars are going, what’s paying off, and which tools are truly moving the needle for students?
Hear from leaders at Edmonds School District in Washington and Darlington County School District in South Carolina who are leveraging rapid-cycle evaluation (RCE) in partnership with LearnPlatform by Instructure to analyze the impact of strategic edtech investments. We’ll discuss why they chose to do this work, how they think about measuring outcomes, and how they see this data impacting budgetary, operational and instructional decisions going forward.
Attendees can expect to come away with first-hand insights on evidence-based edtech management, best practices for district-generated research, and actionable tips for engaging with edtech provider partners in evidence work.
