Where Top VCs Are Investing in Edtech

Report after report cites low usage numbers for software, a problem driven largely by districts not thinking through how an ed-tech product should be used prior to buying it and then setting realistic expectations for usage, experts say.Most software licenses districts buy never get used and—98 percent—of licenses aren’t used intensively.
To solve this problem, experts say the best way to get the best bang for your education technology buck is to set expectations for how often a particular piece of software should be used and track usage.
One potential reason for low usage rates: District leaders in charge of buying software can’t always consult with every teacher to figure out what meets his or her needs.
