New Database to Help Link Educators With Researchers
The Every Student Succeeds Act's evidence standards are intended to drive more educators and researchers to work together to explore problems in education and find solutions.
That's why the University of Virginia and the nonprofit Jefferson Education Accelerator are building a networking database to help connect school district officials and education entrepreneurs.
The National Education Researcher Database expects to launch this fall with a searchable database of profiles for more than 10,000 education researchers, including areas of expertise, contact information, and tags that will allow users to "follow" researchers and get regular updates on their work.
