“We know that technology alone is not enough,” said Intel Education Strategist Paige Johnson. “Schools need access to the valuable research on what works so that it can help guide the implementation of their technology platform’s deployment. The Project RED initiative gives districts a professional learning community to study best known methods and adapt the approached for their local needs.”
