The Great Online Migration

This summer, we will be undertaking qualitative analyses of educational technology corporations. Doing so will allow us to profile these corporations and understand what they offer as a service to school districts within the United States, and more specifically, in Alameda and Sutter counties in California. Furthermore, building these profiles of educational technology corporations will hopefully allow us further insight as to how school districts spend their money on the technology and how those contracts are negotiated.

I really appreciate the opportunity to be able to continue to engage in rigorous research with my team, even for a short period following my graduation from UC Berkeley. This funding allows me to enjoy the last bit of Berkeley before I move on to my career. Thank you, donors!!!
