Implementing new education technologies can be done well--or it can be a painful experience for all stakeholders and have a marginal impact on outcomes. In this presentation, Betsy Corcoran, former technology editor for Forbes, The Washington Post, and Scientific American, and the cofounder and CEO of EdSurge, will share the insights and analysis from the five years of reporting and research her team has done on what educators need to know about technology before embarking on this path and what works or wastes time in edtech implementations. Betsy’s presentation examines this process from consensus building through evaluation to professional learning support. She offers insights from survey research, dozens of focus groups across the country, and the extensive reporting done by the EdSurge editorial team. Join Betsy and take away a list of things to do and things to avoid when making edtech decisions to ensure longevity and success.
