Project RED: Global Toolkit for Education, Chapter 8 Conclusion
Education leaders and policymakers worldwide are looking for ways to improve the quality of schools while slowing the growth of expenditures. The positive financial impact of properly implemented educational technology can contribute substantially to the solution. In fact, Project RED found substantial evidence that properly implemented educational technology can be revenue-positive at all levels—national, state, and local. These savings can be continually reinvested back into the program to enhance its success, such as increasing bandwidth, purchasing digital content, and enhancing professional development.
Our futures rely on students’ development and contributions locally, nationally, and globally. Students who participate in 21st century education systems, as fostered in this toolkit, learn how to innovate, create, become entrepreneurs, and thus stimulate economies. The latter is crucial for global competitiveness and to positively impact a national workforce.
