A large percentage (42.2 percent) of parents believe that technology can help ease the transition to the Common Core curriculum.

Additional survey findings surrounding parents’ technology preferences revealed:

  • A desire to implement classroom technology that would allow tracking of their child's progress in real-time (44.9 percent), as well as: Educational tools to use at home (32.6 percent) Notification if their child is falling behind (26.6 percent) Personalized coursework recommendations (23.8 percent)
  • Parents would take advantage of educational technology that recommends supplemental coursework designed to improve their child's performance in the classroom (37 percent)

Starting this Fall, New York school districts will have access to DataCation Compass, an educational dashboard built by ConnectEDU and CaseNEX-DataCation to support this transition.
