SAN FRANCISCO, CA—EdSurge, the go-to resource for education technology, is thrilled to release its latest collection of educator essays: “Going Back to School With the Fifty States Project, 2016.”
Supported in part by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the collection of articles was written over the course of the past ten months by educators—teachers, edtech coordinators, librarians, superintendents and others—from all fifty U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. This guide celebrates the knowledge and best practices shared by these educators from urban, suburban and rural communities, and offers tips and tricks for the new school year from educators who’ve been there, especially with technology.
The guide includes an interactive map of articles based on their writer’s location, as well as a powerful list: 2016 Popular Edtech Tools From Coast to Coast, which includes 15 standout tools repeatedly mentioned by Fifty States writers.
“The range of topics chosen by writers this year has varied from formative assessment tools, to redesigning classroom layouts, to getting rid of grade levels,” says Betsy Corcoran, cofounder and CEO of EdSurge. “But one main message has been consistent: edtech tools typically don’t work without educator leadership.”
