In a world awash in technology, K–12 students and teachers also benefit from tech that’s specifically designed for the classroom. With ed tech, teachers can automate manual tasks, engage students, increase collaboration, flip their classrooms and more.
According to a recent survey from Clever about ed tech, 68 percent of teachers cite efficiency gains as ed tech’s main advantage, while 74 percent of administrators say ed tech can improve teacher effectiveness.
With the value of ed tech so clear, it’s also indisputable that the people tasked with incorporating these tools into classrooms — from teacher volunteers to instructional integration specialists to IT professionals — are vital. To the teachers whom they help get up to speed, they are a special type of hero: ed tech superheroes. And we know that not all heroes wear capes.
