School may be out for the summer, but district and school administrators are hard at work planning for the 2018–19 school year.
Modern classrooms are being transformed by technology. Recent, dramatic increases in student access to technology through bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and 1:1 initiatives have provided teachers with blended and virtual learning opportunities for their students that can fundamentally change how learning occurs. As the traditional classroom evolves into an environment rich in technology, educators are looking for guidance on how to choose the best educational technology (edtech) solutions.
One way that administrators can lighten their teachers' workloads is through educational technology (edtech). When district and school administrators are looking to implement new edtech, they are often looking only at the ways the programs directly help students. Because teachers can impact student achievement more than any other factor at a school, choosing edtech programs that make their jobs easier will result in better outcomes for students.
