Abstract
Concierge is a platform for school administrators to discover and select education technology products to support school improvement. The intended users are principals, technology coaches, and curriculum directors who are responsible for selecting and implementing education technology in K–12 classrooms or schools. Concierge will include components to guide administrators through the product discovery, selection, and implementation process, including: an indexed database and taxonomy of education technology products; a diagnostic for administrators to determine the specific school needs; an automated matching program to identify available products in the index to address needs; a tool for administrators to evaluate the products selected and implemented; and a content management system for managing data and communications.
