The 2022-23 school year was arguably the first since before the COVID-19 pandemic when leaders, educators, students, and families weren’t worrying about the immediate dangers of a novel virus upending the health and lifestyles of communities around the world, according to State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA). But the wheel of time keeps turning, and schools continue to deal with new challenges and transformations, from cyberattacks to generative AI. SETDA is excited to release the first follow-up to the annual State EdTech Trends Report, an analysis of feedback from state education and technology leaders through surveys administered in collaboration with Whiteboard Advisors. Whereas last year’s report highlighted states’ preoccupation with the implementation of edtech fueled by trillions in federal stimulus funds, this year’s report catalogs the ways states are adjusting to a world in which technology is ubiquitous and unavoidable and where new and emerging innovations—like ChatGPT—create never-before-seen opportunities and risks for learning.
