#82 - On Efficacy and Impact in Edtech

The third part of the ASU GSV Summit Series on The Edtech Podcast. Listen here.

Welcome everyone to this third episode from the ASU GSV Summit series on The Edtech Podcast. This week we hear about efficacy and impact touching upon evidence-based education, why you shouldn't attempt to be a researcher, and why accreditation isn't the answer in the complicated world of education! 

Don't forget to check out the reference links below, for more follow up videos, podcasts and reading on this topic. 

What's in this episode?

Sample quotes: 

Rather than saying let’s do it like this because Vgotsky said so in the 1920s, let’s look at what is the alternative 
Very very infrequently is the efficacy and impact judged in advance of major policy decisions
We want to make it more likely that the edtech products that reach our classrooms will have the best impact, not just the best marketing claims
