In Washington, D.C. just about a month ago, the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education, Digital Promise, and the Jefferson Education Accelerator hosted a symposium focused on the role of efficacy research in the development, adoption, and implementation of educational technology. The issues and challenges raised there continue to ripple outward across the education landscape and the edtech ecosystem and will continue to do so in the months and years to come. The meeting was the culmination of a year-long collaboration among stakeholders who would do well to continue to increase their work together in support of education technology: academic researchers; entrepreneurs; district and university leaders; investors and philanthropists; and teachers and professors. Highlights from the symposium’s over 55 presenters and participants with diverse ideas for moving efficacy to the center of the discourse concerning the development, adoption, and implementation of technology in education are all right here: Learn more.
