It’s estimated that U.S. school districts now spend over 13 billion dollars a year on educational technology. With such a significant investment being made by schools across the nation, it’s imperative that education leaders possess a clear understanding of how their EdTech purchases are being used in their classrooms and can articulate in quantitative terms the impact their investments are having in relation to student performance. During this edLeader Panel, Suzy Brooks, Instructional Technology Director at Mashpee Public Schools in Massachusetts, will share tips and recommendations for successfully conducting an internal EdTech audit. She discusses eye-opening trends she’s discovered in her own district through the auditing process and share how she’s leveraging the findings to save money, create targeted professional development plans, and produce positive outcomes in the classroom.
This edLeader Panel will be of interest to school and district leaders of kindergarten through high school.
