Those benefits are among the reasons why the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) highlighted data-driven practices as one of the top five accelerators in its recently released report, “Driving K–12 Innovation: 2020 Hurdles + Accelerators.” The rest of the list includes social-emotional learning, learners as creators, personalization and building the human capacity of leaders.
