Organization That Provides Information on How Well EdTech Tools Perform
The EdTech Evidence Exchange partners with thousands of educators across subject areas and grade levels to collect information about the contexts and circumstances shaping the outcomes of edtech implementations. The organization also collaborates with philanthropy to guide its research and align its work with their goals and mission. Donors with strong interest in supporting the education of English language learners, for example, might partner with the EdTech Evidence Exchange to prioritize research focused on better understanding the variables that impact the implementation of tools designed to help educators improve outcomes for English learners. Philanthropic partners also fund stipends and technical support that the EdTech Evidence Exchange provides directly to educators and other decision-makers in exchange for the time and experiences that they contribute to the organization’s research projects. The aim is to reflect the diverse perspectives and backgrounds that make up the field, including educators with varying levels of technological and instructional expertise who work in settings from prekindergarten through college.
Each month we publish blogs and several newsletters full of digital learning, funding, professional growth, social media, and STEM resources. Below are items from our blogs and newsletters that educators turned to the most in June.

percent virtual. September was the start of a teaching and learning experience like
no other, and we were ready for anything.
