Clarity earned a Power Learner Potential Organization Award from 1EdTech Consortium™ (1EdTech), the world-leading non-profit, edtech collaborative, at the 2024 Learning Impact Conference. The award is given annually to organizations that are leading the way in creating innovative, open, and trusted edtech ecosystems that power learner potential.

IDLA is the state virtual school for Idaho, providing supplemental online education to over 40,000 enrollments across Idaho. IDLA has always been surrounded with data but found that the data was not accessible or actionable. This Data and Insight gap was the key driver of the journey that led to Clarity, IDLA’s
next-generation Data Platform. By integrating data across systems, Clarity provides connected, timely, and actionable data that is easy to access. Clarity effectively addresses the data and insight gap, which is crucial to decision-making.

Data sources for Clarity currently include IDLA’s SIS, Schoology, Agilix Buzz, Watermark EvaluationKit, and Google Workspaces. The solution is built on the Google Cloud Platform, and data is centralized using BigQuery. Clarity dashboards and mobile apps were created using an elaborate Insights Generation Workflow (IGW), connecting and aggregating data so Teachers, Principals, Staff, Students, and Parents have data that provides a clear path to supporting student learning.

1EdTech is a future-focused member organization where some of the most innovative educational providers and technology companies collaborate to improve digital learning solutions and prepare for future challenges. Through collaborations and standards that work for all stakeholders, members create solutions that enable transformative digital learning experiences, personalized learner journeys, boost achievement opportunities, and improve learner success.

“Creating educational technology that supports student success requires cross-boundary leadership spanning IT and curriculum and instruction from stakeholders across K-12, Higher Education, suppliers, governments, and philanthropic funders,” Tim Clark, vice president of K-12 programs for 1EdTech. “Our Power Learner Potential Awards recognize those organizations that are the driving force behind groundbreaking strategies and technologies that improve
teaching and learning at all levels.”

To earn a Power Learner Potential Award, organizations must show their leadership and advocacy of the community, participate and be actively engaged in the work, demonstrate innovation and ingenuity, and document its impact on teaching and learning. This year, 1EdTech recognized 16 of its more than 1,000 members with Power Learner Potential Awards.
