Educators in K-12 and higher education are finding that partnerships can benefit both sectors, according to a report from EdTech: Focus on K-12 that highlights cases where the two have creatively collaborated. Megan Toliin, director of technology and innovation for the Education Department at Indiana University–Purdue in Indianapolis said in an interview that area K-12 educators received assistance with technology for their blended classrooms in one such effort, and both college students studying technology and education got experience in schools that benefited both parties. The article describes a variety of ways such partnerships can be developed, including colleges helping K-12 schools with gathering and analyzing data, which is critical for budgeting and reporting. And universities can also use the data for research purposes.
