CREATED BY EDTECH VETERANS IN RESPONSE TO ONGOING CHALLENGES
Every new tool, application and web site promises to “engage” students and transform learning, but do you know if that’s true? Even the best resources will fail your students if they fail to use it…but how do you know which tools are being adopted and which are being ignored?
Our mission is simple. We help educators maximize the return on their edtech spend. Every dollar matters and we can help you identify ways where your purchases are and are NOT giving you the desired return. Now, you can take immediate action – whether to rethink what resources you use, or whether you need to be investing in more professional development and change management efforts.
