Questions for Evaluating Business Office Tech

Sep 30, 2022, 12:22 PM

(From EdWeek) The number of educational technology products in schools exploded over the past two years, due in part to free trials from companies during the pandemic and billions in federal COVID relief cash. But how do administrators measure whether a product is worth keeping or trying for the first time? Education journalist Alyson Klein, in an article for EdWeek, outlines the following questions:

  1. Does it meet state privacy laws?
  2. Does it come with accessibility features?
  3. Does it mesh with the school's approach to teaching a particular subject?
  4. Does it replicate a tool the school already uses widely?
  5. Will it work with the school's hardware and software?
  6. Is there clear evidence to show that the technology helps improve operational efficiency?
