A $1.6 million grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative will boost a nascent nonprofit that’s seeking to help teachers make better-informed decisions about education technology.

The University of Virginia teamed up with Strada Education Network last year to launch the Jefferson Education Exchange, which evolved from an incubator based at the Curry School of Education and Human Development.
