Two very interesting articles came through the Tech&Learning newsfeeds this weekend regarding how the edtech marketplace interacts with schools. Here’s the short form. Jill Barchay at the Hechinger report breaks down a recent research study that concludes: 1) Computers and internet access alone don’t boost learning; 2) Some math software shows promise; and 3) Cheap can be effective. Rob Waldron at Education Next advises on how to deal with potential purchases: 1) Check the Fridge Before You Go Shopping; 2) Ask: What Is the Technology Being “Hired” to Do?; 3) Buy off the Rack. Both pieces deserves a full read. —Kevin Hogan, Content Director
