Innovative technology is rapidly disrupting higher education. When the grades my daughter is earning in elementary school are entered into the county’s grading portal, it can predict how successful she is likely to be in school when she enters ninth grade. Additionally, when she reaches high school and is ready to take more ownership of her classes, she will be provided a recommended course list complementing her academic strengths and interests.
