Diversity and inclusion report 2016

By Nic Woodyard on

Over the past year, Clever has been working to move closer to our goal of creating and nurturing a truly diverse and inclusive company. As we said last year: “We know a lack of diversity is not a problem that can be solved, but rather a mission for equity that requires constant vigilance.”

Since we embarked on our mission, we invested time in understanding where we stand and where we can improve. Then we published this data in a series of blog posts focusing on our current numbers, survey pedagogy, and ways we’re working to move the needle on equity in our corner of the world.

As I reflect on 2016, I would like to offer our thanks to the students, teachers, administrators, and application developers who are powering the movement to improve learning outcomes and make education technology work in the classroom.

For schools, the value of intelligent integration is all around us

By Kevin Acocella on

With the universe of high-quality, effective K-12 learning applications as wide as it’s ever been, schools are adding new apps at a rapid rate. But for all of the benefits these resources have in the classroom, they’re not particularly interoperable, so stitching it all together into a manageable system is presenting some challenges for schools. To get a sense of the issue, let’s consider a holiday tale about me and Mark Zuckerberg.
