In Successful Edtech, Pedagogy Comes First—Devices Second

Digital Promise

Educational technology (edtech for short) can play a significant role in mitigating and solving this growing dilemma.

EdTech that connects: Learning relationship management systems

The Christensen Institute

Over the past few years, a new category of EdTech platform has popped up across K–12 and higher education called the learning relationship management system (LRM).
