Truancy is often considered to be the catalyst for other long-term problems students will face after their school years are over. It could be the early warning sign of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, and overall delinquency for a student. It’s clear that we have to do more to combat this growing problem, but is edtech the solution? There are several ways that edtech could contribute to a lower truancy rate for schools who are willing to take a risk. Stepping out to attempt the use of new technology might be a terrifying prospect for those dedicated to traditional teaching methods. However, the bottom line is that edtech might be able to keep students in school. Isn’t it worth a try?
