Project RED I – Groundbreaking National Research around Education Technology
Although data gathered over the years have indicated that technology has not achieved the same impact in education as in other sectors of the economy, it has become clear that a few pockets of excellence are successfully transforming schools with technology using specific implementation strategies. The urgent need to understand those successful implementation strategies provided the impetus for Project RED.
Recognizing the connection between education and the economy, Project RED established a second goal: to research the potentially positive financial impact of technology in schools. Surprisingly, very little work has been done on the financial impact of technology in education, unlike the private sector.
Project RED II – From Research to Results
There is a national buzz around the Project RED findings. Project RED II will operationalize the findings from the original research. The goal is to create a cadre of schools and districts who will integrate Project RED findings into their practices. The staff and sites will be supported through a myriad of resources conferences and consultancies to help guide their success. Those interested may apply for Project RED certification status.
