The Problem Today

How can you manage your edtech efforts if you can’t measure adoption?

Representing 25% of the annual spend for most schools’ technology budgets, software and digital content represents an area that, for the most part, school officials have been traditionally unable to measure if resources are used, and exactly how much they’re used, if at all. Some relied upon data provided by the software and content publishers, who have a vested interest in showing their software is being used. Based on aggregate data collected from some of our initial school districts, here’s a glimpse of how paid resources are actually being used by students.

8%

Wasted

Student accounts with 0% active use

45%

Unused

Student accounts where active use was <= 10% of target benchmark

42%

Underused

Student accounts where active use was between 11-75% of target benchmark

5%

Efficient

Student accounts where active use exceeded 75% of target benchmark

Some Words From Industry Leaders

Even the most effective learning resource is useless if students aren’t actually using it. PAPERbasket solves the missing link to give real, accurate data to know when and if resources are being used

Kathy Hurley, CEO, Girls Thinking Global

Schools often lack the very resources to facilitate change management. PAPERbasket helps schools make efficient use of their IT resources and gives school leaders the knowledge they need to make positive change.

Tom Greaves, CEO, The Greaves Group

Two of the seven Project RED Key Findings are:  1) Properly implemented technology saves money, and 2) Daily use of technology delivers the best return on investment (ROI). PAPERbasket provides data that can aid schools in making sound IT decisions and ensuring effective use of IT resources. The reporting feature gives district officials granular information for analysis and financial projection.

Leslie Wilson, Project RED co-author and CEO, One-to-One Institute

Why was PAPERbasket named Best New Product for 2018?

2018 Best New Product WinnerOur method of collecting data is unique and currently patent-pending. First, we are the only company that has developed a method for distinguishing active vs. inactive use, helping schools get a more accurate picture of real usage. Second, while other companies attempt to collect data on the server or cloud level, and others only rely on data from select web site publishers, each method leaves major gaps in the total use picture. Some companies may offer local tracking on Chromebooks, but are unable to distinguish active use, making it difficult to assess the validity of your data. PAPERbasket is the only company that collects active use data on the device level across multiple operating systems.

EdTech Digest, in naming us the Best New Product for 2018, describes us as “…a small dedicated group of edtech veterans huddled for schools and came through with a unique solution that peers behind the curtain for a much clearer view that helps make every edtech dollar count.
