EdTech 10: Launches, Reports and Transitions

It has been a big week for reports from Digital Learning Now and Pearson, launches from Knewton and IMS Global, and transitions for companies like Scholastic and leaders like Heather Staker.

As our nation celebrates the national and state teachers of the year, it’s worth stepping back to examine the role of HR departments in fostering next-gen environments for teachers to blossom in.

West Virginia, Ohio, Arizona, and Florida were among the states we profiled in anticipation for this week’s launch of the 2014 Digital Learning Report Card (details below).

We’ve also been busy preparing for the launch of “Preparing Leaders for Deeper Learning” with blogs from co-author Karen Cator on lessons learned on leadership from Digital Promise’s League of Innovative Schools, and ways EdLeaders can develop skills in six areas of deeper learning.

Digital Developments

Making The Grade. Earlier this week Getting Smart Advocacy Partner Digital Learning Now released their fourth annual Digital Learning Report Card that evaluates state progress in advancing high quality learning opportunities for students. Many states made great progress this year, how did your state rank?

Data Shaken, Not Stirred. Education partners can now track district capital improvement projects with SchoolBondFinder.com. Launched by the Amos Group, this is the first comprehensive service that uncovers relevant capital projects, and tracks progress of districts to support organizations in the bond funding process.
