Navigating the Complex World of Edtech

Educational institutions today grapple with the challenge of maintaining transparency in the ever-expanding universe of edtech tools. The Inventory Dashboard confronts this issue head-on, offering an all-encompassing view of the edtech landscape students and teachers use. This holistic approach allows institutions to identify trends, decipher usage patterns, and make well-informed decisions. By clarifying approved tools for teachers, the Inventory Dashboard empowers educators to integrate technology into their teaching methods seamlessly.

The Inventory Dashboard was a great first step for us. We are able to use the information to ascertain if subscriptions are being used at a level that justified renewal...and to gain insight into products being used that are not in our list of approved apps.

Effortless Tool Requests and Evaluation

Streamlining the process of requesting and evaluating new edtech tools is a game-changer. With the Inventory Dashboard, educators can effortlessly request new tools, initiating a customizable evaluation process tailored to the district's specific needs. This saves valuable time and ensures that every tool aligns with the district's educational goals and standards. The evaluation process becomes collaborative, involving all stakeholders and fostering a sense of ownership and responsibility.

Amplifying Educator Voices: Gathering Feedback and Enhancing Engagement

In the realm of education, the input of educators is invaluable, especially those who interact with edtech tools daily. The Inventory Dashboard is equipped with built-in tools to collect feedback from teachers, creating a channel for them to share their experiences and insights. This fosters a sense of involvement and alleviates the burden on all stakeholders. Thoughtful automation ensures that every step of the evaluation process is communicated effectively, keeping educators informed and engaged in decision-making.

The Power of Centralization: A District Edtech Library

Centralization is the bedrock of efficiency. The Inventory Dashboard serves as a centralized district edtech library, simplifying access to approved tools while highlighting those that require further evaluation or management. This approach enhances security, data privacy, and compliance by shedding light on unapproved or unmanaged edtech. By doing so, educational institutions can safeguard student and educator well-being, ensuring a secure digital learning environment.

Maximizing Value Through Data-Driven Insights

Uncovering the true value of edtech tools can be a challenging endeavor. The Inventory Dashboard rises to this challenge by providing insights into tool usage. This includes identifying underutilized licenses, discovering potential cost savings, and spotting duplicative tools. Equipped with these insights, educational institutions can make strategic decisions that maximize the value of their edtech investments and ensure fiscal responsibility in an era of budget constraints.

The Inventory Dashboard has proven to be an invaluable resource for educational leaders. By leveraging actual usage data, it dramatically reduces guesswork in edtech effectiveness, compliance and costs.
