Our country spends more than $10 billion on K-12 education technology. What can we say with any confidence about the promise and possibilities of such investments? Are there clear conclusions to be drawn about what, where and when the use of technology is beneficial, and for which students? What are the key challenges to be met in maximizing the potential contribution of technology to raise students’ achievement overall and to accelerate the learning of our most underprivileged students? Our distinguished panel discussed these important questions.
Speakers: Julia Freeland Fisher, director of education research at the Clayton Christensen Institute; Jamie Stewart, Co-head of School and Lead Educator, AltSchool, Brooklyn Heights; Kevin Wenzel, Specialist, Blended Learning, Office of Teaching and Learning, District of Columbia Public Schools
