Fancy seeing you here.
This week we've been reading about buying edtech, futile attempts to define personal learning, measuring the success of classroom tech, and high schools in airports.
First things first: our fave story of the week came from The Hechinger Report. Nicole Dobo explores how schools measure success of their edtech. "More than ever, how to measure the success – or lack thereof – of educational technology is being debated among educators, policy wonks and academics," writes Dobo. It's a nice edtech thought-starter for the weekend.
I also recommend you click the EdSurge piece below authored by our own Eli Jameson, all about the connection between schools and edtech vendors.
Hope you enjoy this week's edtech picks - we'll be back with more next Friday.
