K12, Inc. and Project Tomorrow recently published “Leveraging Technology to Close the Achievement Gap: A Critical Peer Survey,” a white paper in a two-part series that examines results from the SPEAK UP national survey and ways edleaders are targeting critical challenges in education.
Project Tomorrow CEO Julie Evans focuses on how educators are closing the achievement gap with technology in the wake of a fiscal crisis and budget shortfalls. Evans points to the ways we can leverage technology, mobile learning, virtual schools, online courses, digital textbooks, and data tracking.
In her analysis, Evans says these tools today are showing ways we can:
- Improve assessments, individualization, and test results
- Reduce dropout rates
- Serve multiple needs in rural districts, and
- Provide early intervention for recovery programs.
