For the third year in a row, The Atlantic examined the new policies and tools available to those working on the front lines to bolster American student learning and achievement.
The Atlantic’s third-annual Technologies in Education Forum focused on the technologies that are revolutionizing the way we learn. Panel discussions and headline interviews discussed the latest innovations transforming the classroom, policy changes needed to promote technologies in schools, and how to best prepare students to fill much-needed STEM jobs.
