Traditional education research is important and valuable. However, it's time to add a new layer of research and analysis to support improved decision-making - collecting large amounts of high quality feedback from the front lines.
Because we believe that the collective experience of educators can unlock our shared potential, we support educators with funding and support to help them document their implementation experiences in a way that has never been captured at scale. We work to pioneer a new paradigm for educational research that considers not just efficacy, but the complex and difficult to measure world of education technology implementation.
We also believe that educators benefit from opportunities to discuss their experiences with particular edtech products in the absence of vendors. We facilitate open and honest information-sharing by convening educators in a confidential environment.
To maintain the highest standards of quality, the work and research conducted by the Jefferson Education Exchange is subject to the oversight of the University of Virginia and, where applicable, its Institutional Review Board. JEX does not collect personally identifiable information about students.
