(Minneapolis, Mn. & Alexandria, Va.) June 7, 2018 — GreyED Solutions announced today their acceptance into the State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA) Emerging Private Sector Partners Program, which launches this month. The partnership allows companies to benefit from opportunities to showcase their products and services, receive feedback and advice, and engage in thoughtful dialogue with educational leaders.
“We are deeply appreciative to SETDA for selecting us to be a part of their 2018 Emerging Partners Program,” said Julie Carter, EdD, the co-founder and CEO of GreyED Solutions. “We look forward to sharing FilterED with SETDA members, including state educational technology directors, and state and regional curriculum and instruction, assessment, and professional development leaders, at the 2018 SETDA Emerging Technologies Leadership Forum in Chicago.”
FilterED is a cloud-based, comprehensive tool used to view evidence and data in an easy-to-read format. The digital tool assesses six critical elements that make up an organization’s edtech ecosystem. GreyED’s analysis solution gathers rich, complex data from stakeholders and presents the organizational results using an intuitive, dynamic dashboard. School leaders can use this platform to identify where their strengths are, track growth over time, and ultimately provide transparency to community and school board members when making the decision to purchase and implement new technology in their school.

“Making informed decisions to purchase technology at a school or district level is a true challenge for a variety of reasons,” said Carter. “But GreyED Solutions and its FilterED product offer that much-needed set of tools for district leaders who want to understand and maximize their investments in technology in a way that’s visual and concrete.”
During the Emerging Technologies Leadership Forum, which takes place June 22–25, state members and the private sector will engage in a discussion of the importance in digital learning across the nation.
