The massive, systemwide move to remote learning over the past few months created huge frustrations for educators. Teacher morale dropped, student engagement was down, and budget cutting plans were already starting. But, at the same time, by necessity, K-12 educators across the country upgraded their tech skills faster than ever before.

This issue of Technology Counts tackles those kinds of questions in an effort to help K-12 school district leaders, principals, and teachers tackle the technological challenges they will face in the year ahead.
