Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Our one hour round of research provided some of the top educational technology tools and software that are shaping the future of education. Given that there are available sources on this topic, we propose to continue with the research to provide 4-6 additional top educational technology tools and software that are shaping the future of education. We will define the top ones based on available metrics such as funding amount, awards, revenue, number of clients, and other metrics. For each tool or software identified, we will provide the name of the tool, a 1-2 sentence description of the tool, why they were chosen, 1-2 review comments, and 1-2 programs or schools that are using the tool.
We also recommend undertaking additional research to provide 2-3 trends in the education software industry. For each trend, we will indicate what the trend is, why it is a trend, and provide examples of education software providers that are manifesting this trend.
