What are the stages?


Highly organized and streamlined processes for rapidly evaluating interventions, practices and tools to improve implementation, budget and instructional decisions, and drive better outcomes for all students.


Established and practical processes for edtech procurement, management, compliance, and knowledge-sharing. Strong focus on maximizing time and investments across the organization.


Widespread adoption of technology with the hope of driving improved outcomes or solving immediate problems, but unstructured, disconnected, or inefficient processes. Often described as the "Wild West."


Limited use of individual technology tools, with minimal organization wide structures.

The Framework uses a research methodology to help districts identify their current stage of edtech effectiveness to improve edtech outcomes and spending.
