As a term that has come to popularity in recent years, the question of “what’s your why?” is likely something you’ve heard before.
Only a few dozen education technology companies have achieved the Project Unicorn Interoperability Certification, and only a small number of those have achieved Tier 4 certification—the most rigorous level. This designation means that our products and platforms can be easily integrated with many other applications. But what does this mean for schools and districts?
Every teacher is in favor of tools that can help students succeed. Yet, many districts and administrators fail to make that case to the rank and file when adopting new education technology. Instead, they either mandate that the product be used and encroach on the teachers’ autonomy or make a short announcement about the new tool with little to no instruction on how it works, which means few, if any, teachers are using it later in the school year. Here are some ways to avoid either scenario and make sure that you get the most return on your investment.
