Guiding Education Businesses Through the Research Wringer
Education researchers often lament the evidence—or lack of evidence—backing programs in the booming education technology field.
Now, a business "accelerator" project, run in collaboration with the University of Virginia, is trying to fill the gap in research quality in the ed-tech marketplace. The Jefferson Education Accelerator, a commercial venture, plans to invest in companies that agree to subject their products and services to high-quality research. UVA's Curry School of Education is advising the accelerator.
