Measuring Success: How Will We Know When We Get There? Backgrounder Brief. CoSN Essential Leadership Skills Series
Consortium for School Networking (NJ1)
This Backgrounder Brief is an executive summary of "Measuring Success: How Will We Know When We Get There?," a component of CoSN's Essential Leadership Skills Series. It has been over twenty years and billions of dollars spent for educational technology since the first computers were put into schools, and educators are hearing increased demands for evidence that these investments have been worthwhile. But "proving" that educational technology is worth the investment is a complex challenge for educators. The good news is that there are now some major research studies pointing to the effectiveness of technology use in schools.
