There are over 8,000 edtech products used in K-12 schools (LearnPlatform Top 40 Report, 2021) and fewer than 1% have earned the Digital Promise Research-Based Design Product Certification since 2020.
LXD Research recently supported Hatch Early Learning‘s application and submission for the latest Digital Promise Research-Based Design Product Certification, and we’re excited to share that our efforts have helped Ignite by Hatch™ officially earn this esteemed certification.
Ignite is a learning science research-based early childhood practice and embedded assessment program that covers seven domains of academic and social and emotional (SEL) skills to boost kindergarten readiness. The program is unique in that it offers access from school and home, providing both educators and parents with guidance on their child’s progress, while simultaneously linking learning data to a preschool’s assessment system.
Hatch partnered with LXD Research for our team’s expertise in conducting and reporting rigorous evaluation studies of edtech products. The Digital Promise Product Certification serves as a rigorous, reliable resource for district and school administrators, educators, and families looking for evidence of edtech products that are based on research about learning, providing even more support in favor of using Ignite.
The LXD Research team is excited to offer companies the support they need to tell their research stories clearly and powerfully through the creation of research summaries, logic models, and blog articles. Reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
