Roots Director of Operations and Innovation Explains Modifying Tech Tools for Students

Roots Director of Operations and Innovation, Jill Tew, discussed early modification needs and how those needs will change as students develop more skills and grow.


Transcript: Jill Tew: A lot of what we did this year was to make it easy for prereaders to access the tool. Well, as our scholars get into third, fourth, fifth grade, that becomes irrelevant. What might become more relevant is building in more agency or more autonomy for scholars into that tool. So, those sorts of things I could certainly see us expanding the functionality of the tool by working with developers to kind of add bits and pieces to it.
