Mapping the EdTech Genome: What Works Where & Why

More than $13 billion is spent on edtech each year -- but 85% of it is wasted on tools that are either poorly implemented or a poor fit for the context. The EdTech Genome Project, launched in 2019 as a massive, sector-wide initiative, is discovering how to help districts and schools make wiser edtech decisions. Learn from members of the diverse team that is leading this groundbreaking work as, for the first time, they share the group’s early findings and seek audience feedback.
