A framework for evaluating appropriateness of educational technology use in global development programs

Year of Publication 2016

In the course of this study we developed a framework to be used by various stakeholders in assessing the suitability of new educational products or interventions. Stakeholders include developers of new technologies, or adopters, including systemwide administrators, school principals or teachers. The framework is intended to be used before the adoption of an intervention, or as a formative assessment of that intervention as it is being deployed. Though we piloted this framework in the context of the specific domain of language learning, our larger goal was to create a tool that would be more broadly applicable.
