PR Newswire: Virginia Researchers Map the “EdTech Genome:” Publish 10 Variables that Affect Effectiveness of Technology in the Classroom. (PRESS RELEASE) “Even before the pandemic, the U.S. was spending between $25 and $41 billion per year on education technology—but schools and districts make these high-stakes purchasing decisions with almost no information about which tools work where or why. As a result, approximately half of all education technology is either used ineffectively, materially underused, or unused entirely. To address this challenge, the EdTech Genome Project brought together researchers, educators, industry representatives, and policymakers to define and measure the 10 variables identified as most likely to have the greatest impact on edtech selection and implementation.”
