Moderator: Gwen Solomon, Contributing Editor, Tech & Learning

With more than $3 billion spent on ed tech products last year and more than 2,500 programs on the market, educators need to know which products actually improve student learning.

Dr. Ryan S. Baker, Director of the Penn Center for Learning Analytics and Associate Professor, Teaching, Learning, and Leadership Division, studied 1.4M hours of usage data from 392,603 students in 48 districts to put together a comprehensive report that reveals surprising findings on the range of cost per license, the degree ed tech apps are being used, and the level of app effectiveness for math, science, and ELA. 

Join Tech&Learning for a discussion with  Dr. Baker and Hae-Song Jung, Content & Professional Learning Specialist with BrightBytes, to find out which apps work best nationally and how to analyze your district’s data to understand the use, effectiveness, and real cost of your ed tech investments.
