Our Focus:

EdScoop delivers breaking news and original analysis for and about K-12 and higher education technology decision makers. Our staff reporters and editors focus primarily on how K-12 and university education leaders are acquiring, developing and using technology in the classroom and on campus.

We also report on the intersection of federal, state and local education policies that affect the adoption of education technology. And we report on technology developments that are likely to have an impact on the billions of dollars schools and universities spend annually on IT.
