This is part of our coronavirus (COVID-19) and EdTech series.
This week we kicked off our project to make our website more useful during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This is part of the EdTech Hub’s strategy to respond to the pandemic, by providing rapid, actionable information and advice to government decision-makers. We want to help decision-makers navigate the opportunities and challenges of EdTech in a time of crisis. We’re collaborating with Public Digital on this project, and they are helping us with this user research.
Here at the Hub, as many of you already know, our mission is to increase the use of evidence to inform decision-making about education technology, and to do that we need to share information and help gather feedback and data about what works and what doesn’t.
To help us understand what is useful to you, and how you use the information and services we provide, we are starting some user research. User research will help us understand the needs of our users – your needs. If you can spare some time to talk to us – usually as part of a 1 hour interview with our user researcher – please get in touch. We need your name, job title or role, name of the organisation you work for, country and, ideally, an idea of dates and times you might be available.
We especially want to talk to people who are actively involved in choosing and reviewing the use of technology in schools. We appreciate that COVID-19 is putting many of you under a lot of pressure to solve urgent problems, so we really appreciate your participation in this research.
We look forward to hearing from you and keeping you up to date on our progress.
