On Our Reading List: A Detailed History, Autopsy and Legacy of inBloom

Monica Bulger, Patrick Davison, Mikaela Pitcan

D&S researcher Monica Bulger, with D&S research analysts Mikaela Pitcan and Patrick Davison, recently had their new work, The Legacy of inBloom, discussed in EdSurge.

The intentions, misunderstandings, concerns and failures of inBloom captured in the report reflect issues that afflict the wider education technology industry. “No large-scale educational technology initiatives have ever succeeded in the U.S. K-12 space,” the authors claim. Yet inBloom’s collapse have spurred companies, districts, data advocacy groups and governments to develop best practices for collecting, sharing and using education data. More than 400 state-level legislation concerning student data have since been introduced.
