A recent study published by Digital Promise found that school decision makers rely heavily on pilot tryouts of learning software programs for making procurement decisions. Through a pilot-to-purchase grant awarded by Digital Promise, Fulton County Schools (FCS) embarked on an evaluation project to uncover how the district’s schools make decisions about securing digital resources to support math instruction. FCS partnered with SageFox Consulting to evaluate how teachers identify, secure, and utilize math digital resources. The goal of this evaluation partnership was to develop a standard process by which the district- and school leaders can identify and incorporate digital resources into their classrooms. Presenters discuss lessons learned through these partnerships and key findings from the evaluation study that other districts may leverage to strengthen their digital resource procurement process for the classroom.
