Revolutioninzing Education Through Technology - The Project RED Roadmap for Transformation
“Project RED is nothing less than a blueprint for remaking American education.”
— Angus King, former governor of Maine
“Project RED’s research is rich, deep, practical, and meaningful, with the kind of specifics educators require to carry forward 1:1 programs for fundamental improvement.”
— Pamela Livingston, author of 1-to-1 Learning: Laptop Programs That Work
Effective technology implementation in schools leads to significantly higher student achievement and positive financial impact. That is a bold statement, but one with the backing of Project RED, a team that conducted a survey of a thousand schools to find out what makes technology integration work. Project RED has concluded that properly implemented educational technology, especially 1-to-1 programs where technology is continuously accessible, substantially improves student achievement and can be revenue positive at the local, state, and federal levels. The key is successful integration that brings about transformational change.
