Behind our rubric:
One year of development and refinement
Literature review of existing digital learning rubrics
Interviews with learning and edtech experts
Consultations with a distinguished advisory board
National survey of 300 teachers and 1,100 parents
Iteration based on teacher feedback
Based on the rubric and an in-depth evaluative process, reviewers assign a rating (out of five stars) for each of the three dimensions and an overall rating for the tool. The body of the review offers analysis supporting the rating and implementation tips and ideas.
We pair our expert editorial reviews with from-the-field teacher reviews to deepen the conversation about technology integration in the classroom by focusing on specific examples of student experiences and outcomes as well as creative uses for tools. Our Common Sense Certified Educators, selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, contribute a portion of these reviews.
