Clever, a Software Service, Gives Schools a Way to Manage Data Flow to Apps

Natasha Singer

D&S fellow Natasha Singer details Clever, a software service — free for schools — that enables schools to send student information to web and mobile apps at the click of a button.

Clever is clearly benefiting from the increasing adoption of education software for prekindergarten through 12th grade in the United States, a market estimated at nearly $8.4 billion last year by the Software and Information Industry Association. It has positioned itself as a partial answer to questions from politicians and parents about how much data those kinds of tools may collect on students and how that information is secured and used.
