Navigation of Computer-Based Tests Matters for Young Students, Study Finds | Education Week
The assertion that neither mode nor UI would lead to different behaviors (and hence inferences) is what should be astounding. Everything we know about how people interact online with content suggests we are incredibly sensitive to how info is presented. That we go through elaborate theater to suggest that this is NOT true of online testing says more about education policy than technology.

xDedic Darknet Marketplace Specializes in Selling Access to School and University Servers | The Merkle
"It is not surprising to learn the xDedic crew is mainly targeting servers belonging to educational institutions. Schools and universities often have the least mature security departments and are unable to detect or mitigate such attacks. Plus, their servers often have the RDP protocol enabled as students want to access course material from home. Unfortunately, that makes the servers a prime target for the xDedic group as well."

As Chromebook sales soar in schools, Apple and Microsoft fight back | TechCrunch
Another in a series of horse race stories about how device makers are competing for the education market. The goal is locking schools' into their ecosystem of devices, apps, and partner services. I am of the view that there are compelling arguments that vendor lock-in is not in schools' best interests.

This Program Gets Rural Schools Online. Will It Survive Trump’s FCC? | Fast Company
"In 2013, only 30% of school districts could offer internet connections at a federal target rate of 100 kilobits per second per student, while in early 2016, 77% of schools met that target, according to a January report from officials at the FCC." That federal target was the one we set and advocated for at SETDA during my tenure, and that report would be the report I archived on edtechstrategies.com after Commissioner Pai disavowed it.

Open Educational Resources: Equity & Opportunities | NAACP
"Providing all students an equitable education has been a cornerstone of NAACP since the origination’s inception. For too many years, too many children, particularly African American, other minorities, and poor from all groups have been subjected to lesser educational opportunities, leading to lesser opportunities for success in their personal and work lives. A major contributing factor to the disparities continues to be the lack of appropriate instructional materials."
