Having seen this problem firsthand for many years, and seeing the lack of viable solutions in the market, PAPERbasket set out to help level the playing field. By knowing exactly how many licenses and hours your software and digital resources are being used at school, at home, or anywhere in between, officials can be empowered to make more strategic decisions about their digital learning efforts. The critical element is knowing exactly how much time was “active” and how much time was not.

PAPERbasket helps educators improve the fidelity of their edtech resources, but it also helps officials control edtech budgets. According to EdWeek, 2 out of every 5 edtech district officials rank budget their top concern for the next five years.

EdTech industry leaders. Classroom teachers. Leading media developers. FinTech experts. PAPERbasket brings together innovation for educational technology, software adoption and change management strategies and data-driven decision making to create a new solution unlike anything else.
