LearnPlatform, developer of an edtech effectiveness system used by states and districts serving more than 4 million students, recently published an interesting year-end analysis of edtech usage by students and teachers from February to December 2020. LearnPlatform’s analysis examined engagement with edtech tools by 2.5 million students and 270,000 educators in more than 250 U.S. school districts in 17 states. It shows that by the end of 2020, students and teachers in less affluent districts were using edtech tools more than before the pandemic and significantly more than in the spring, when usage plummeted. Despite those gains, the analysis also reveals wide, persistent usage gaps between teachers and students in districts where more than 25% of students are eligible for free and reduced-priced lunch and their peers in more affluent districts.
