Leveraging EdTech in High Poverty Schools

Keynote Description
Can the use of edtech help close the achievement gap? This workshop will explore ways in which the educational technology can be leveraged to facilitate pedagogical and institutional best practices—and also how it can be used to widen the gap if it’s not used with intentionality.

Intended Outcomes
Participants will know what the research says about the effectiveness of edtech in addressing the achievement gap. Participants will leave with ideas on how to utilize the edtech tools in ways that facilitate pedagogical and institutional best practices in terms of addressing the achievement gap.
