Through previous research and development, the team created an online platform with a library of education technology products, as well as tools to track usage data and to coordinate rapid-cycle evaluations of products in the library being used in schools. This project will develop a prototype of a new component that supports classroom-based implementation of products in the library. The prototype will provide a mechanism for teachers to provide data on their experiences implementing technology products, and customized reports new teachers can use with results from prior teachers on how to best implement education technology. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study with 160 teachers using the prototype, the researchers will examine whether teachers are able to successfully provide the necessary data to generate implementation reports, and if subsequent teachers are able to understand and use data from these reports to guide decision making for implementing education technology.
