The role of familiarity in predicting the ability of technology to improve learning outcomes

We often spend so much time focused on getting technology into classrooms, and devices in the hands of students, that we fail to focus on ensuring that these technologies are actually being applied in a meaningful way.

Teachers are already overburdened with an abundance of requirements and a lack of time to meet them. So, instead of simply demanding they figure out the technology and implementation on their own time, we believe in setting them up for success from the start.
