Company Summary

Technology is reshaping education and student learning. At the same time, schools spend billions annually on technology with little to show for it. School and district leaders lack tools to measure the impact of technology spending on student achievement. BrightBytes' SaaS-based data analytics platform not only measures the impact of school technology spending, but also provides customized roadmaps for improvement and next steps.
