In each episode of the Inside Our MIND podcast, we take a look at issues and challenges facing education that we are working to address through research, technology and strategic initiatives.
In our latest episode, Brian welcomes Senior User Experience (UX) Researcher Alesha Arp back to the show for a discussion on what it truly means to be data-driven. They talk about the overuse of the term “data-driven,” and what it means for data to be actionable. Alesha shares insights from her research and the conversations she’s had with ST Math users that helped inform the redesign of ST Math.
