This free, searchable market map features edtech tools designed to connect students—to new people, supports, and opportunities. This article by the The Christensen Institute, which created the map, provides a great introduction to the tool and frames the important potential of these tools to expand students’ networks and lessen gaps in access to social capital.
The map can be used by educators to identify resources to help students expand their learning outside the classroom by creating new relationships–with coaches, experts, mentors, and peers–otherwise out of reach. Researchers, policy makers, and other education leaders can also use the list to gain insights into how schools are using technology in new ways beyond the more common delivery of curriculum, assessment, and productivity.
