Why Investing in EdTech Evidence Matters

Office of Ed Tech, U.S. Department of Education Deputy Director Kristina Ishmael, Age of Learning Chief Innovation Officer and Head of Mastery & Adaptive Products Sunil Gunderia, Study.com Social Impact Senior Vice President Dana Bryson, Learn Platform Cofounder & CEO Karl Rectanus, and EdSurge Senior Reporter Emily Tate Sullivan discuss why investing in EdTech evidence matters at the 2023 ASU+GSV Summit.

This panel will focus on the criteria districts look for when evaluating EdTech solutions/interventions. What does it mean to be ESSA-level certified, and what can EdTech companies do to strive towards this? From early to lifelong learning, it’s clear that tech-enabled learning is here to stay. EdTech needs to be evidence-based to meet market demands, demonstrate compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), and efficiently serve all educators and students.
