Technology should be easier for students to use if they are to be successful, writes Cameron Evans, the national and chief technology officer of Microsoft Education. Evans writes in this commentary that among the other steps that schools should take to better utilize education technology are to use student data to benefit students, adopt improved policies that regulate the use of student data and make it easier for parents to be involved in students' education. Schools also should be honest, noting that no "single device is a panacea."
