Research shows that the time to make the greatest impact in a child’s learning trajectory is in the earliest grades. In fact, children not caught up to their peers by grade three are four times less likely to graduate from high school. As a result, school and district leaders are embracing developmentally appropriate technology use at an early age to help close the achievement gap before it becomes an even bigger problem.
