Ed tech funding saw again another rise in investment in 2014, continuing the series of rises since 2010 that traces a growing trend in the investment in technology in education. Given this trend, what do we know now about the efficacies of this investment for learning and student success?

He researches, writes, and speaks about emerging trends in the integration of inquiry, pedagogy, and technology and their potential application to liberal arts contexts.
