'Project RED is nothing less than a blueprint for remaking American education.'' - Angus King, former governor of Maine
''Project REDs research is rich, deep, practical, and meaningful, with the kind of specifics educators require to carry forward 1:1 programs for fundamental improvement.'' - Pamela Livingston, author of 1-to-1 Learning: Laptop Programs That Work
Effective technology implementation in schools leads to significantly higher student achievement and positive financial impact. That is a bold statement, but one with the backing of Project RED, a team that conducted a survey of a thousand schools to find out what makes technology integration work. Project RED has concluded that properly implemented educational technology, especially 1-to-1 programs where technology is continuously accessible, substantially improves student achievement and can be revenue positive at the local, state, and federal levels. The key is successful integration that brings about transformational change.
Transformational change - doubling student performance while reducing costs - is possible, and Revolutionizing Education through Technology is your blueprint for how it is done. Get the facts on what works, what makes a successful leader, what proper ed tech implementation looks like, and what cost savings to expect, as well as a vision of schools of the future, where student learning is self-directed and self-paced. See how you can be a part of the education revolution!
Features: A vision for revolutionizing schools through technology integration; an overview of what makes ed tech successful, how you can properly implement technology, and what results you can expect; nine technology and implementation factors; a Project RED checklist that, if followed, help schools achieve meaningful change; a chapter full of potential cost savings due to technology-up to $435 per student.
