Districts make significant investments—in budget dollars, professional development, and instructional time—in education technology (edtech). While edtech solutions can significantly impact student outcomes, understanding academic return on investment can be challenging.

Listen to this edWeb podcast to 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. They discuss why they chose to do this work, how they selected which edtech to evaluate, how they think about measuring outcomes, and how they see this data impacting budgetary, operational, and instructional decisions going forward.

Listeners can expect to gain 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.

This edWeb podcast is of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
