This article outlines the plans of the EdTech Genome Project, a collaborative effort of more than 100 education research and advocacy organizations, to research the contextual factors that impact education technology (ed-tech) implementation. The organization identified the ten factors hypothesized to have the greatest influence, such as adoption plans and school culture. They are now forming working groups that will bring together leading researchers and practitioners to determine how best to measure each factor. Education researchers and educators responsible for ed-tech purchases will want to keep an eye on this work and any forthcoming recommendations.
