The American Institutes for Research will help the Jefferson Education Accelerator identify efficacious educational technology, the two organizations announced on Wednesday. The accelerator, founded by the University of Virginia, provides ed-tech companies that have progressed beyond the start-up stage with capital, mentoring and independent research that tests their products' effect in the classroom. Faculty members at the UVa Curry School of Education also participate in the accelerator's network of researchers. The accelerator in July announced Echo360, a lecture-capture technology provider, would become its first partner company.
