Our pilot process is comprehensive and aims to gather data points that will assist districts in evaluating the educational impact of a specific technology in the classroom. The pilot team will meet with district administrators and designated staff to discuss the appropriate technology and classroom implementation. Our staff developers and district educators collaboratively plan projects and learning activities. We also provide classroom support for all of our pilot projects in the form of co-teaching, coaching, and mentoring.

Please see this linked document for specifics regarding our pilot process.
