Some key findings are highlighted below:
The power of data-informed decision making in early education is irrefutable.
- To get the most out of this data, teachers need access to comprehensive student datasets.
- Over 96% of teachers find benefits from using EdTech, with 44% noting significant time savings.
In today’s classrooms, data management practices play a critical role in student success.
- Using data dashboards, whether digital or physical, helps administrators and educators to assess how they can best support their students.
- Designating specific “data days” provides teachers with the opportunity to review, interpret and apply data to enhance their instruction and differentiate it to better meet students’ individual needs.
- Education technology solutions make it easier to collect, visualize and understand data, further streamlining data management practices in the classroom.

Vince Hill, Principal in Grasslands School Division in rural Alberta experienced the benefits first-hand when data management practices were implemented in his school.
“I cannot stress enough how much time holistic, data-driven EdTech tools have saved our teachers and administrators since we first introduced them into our curricula,” says Hill. “The insight gained has an undeniably positive impact on student-teacher engagement and overall class progress. It also allows for continued development and growth at home, in the classroom and even within our surrounding communities.”
Jarrett Laughlin, Founder of Sprig Learning believes parents and caregivers have an important role to play. “Families are critical stakeholders for learning, and they need to and should be given the opportunity to understand how data is being used to inform the decisions regarding their child.”
The data collected is most effective when holistic learning methods and new-age data-driven EdTech work together in harmony.
Sprig Learning has taken the necessary measures to ensure the data collected through its technology is safe, reliable and accessible for all teachers.
Education technology and data-informed decision-making are still in their early stages, so it’s crucial for schools and teachers to take the lead.
By using innovative learning tools and programs, we can optimize instructional decisions and support student growth and success.
