10 factors that help determine ed tech success or failure

educationdive | February 13, 2020

The EdTech Genome Project, an initiative of the nonprofit Jefferson Education Exchange aimed at helping schools and districts make better-informed decisions when purchasing ed tech solutions, has determined 10 factors that influence whether classroom tech implementations will succeed, with further study on these variables occurring over the coming year. Each year, educators spend more than $13 billion on ed tech tools and products, but the vast majority of purchases go unused or are not implemented effectively. The EdTech Genome Project is the first of its kind. It was partly inspired by Pearson’s Law, which states “that which is measured improves,” and “that which is measured and reported improves exponentially,” according to Bart Epstein, president and CEO of the Jefferson Education Exchange and research associate at the University of Virginia's Curry School of Education, in a press statement.

K-12 education is at the beginning of what many hope will be a systemic transformation toward personalized learning. Across the nation, schools are experimenting with personalized learning to better meet each student’s unique needs and ensure broader access to a world-class education. Many of these experiments have been captured in individual case studies and other vivid narratives, but the field lacks a broad-based understanding of how personalized learning is emerging in classrooms across the United States.
