This paper focuses on the importance of evaluating educational technology for young people aged 10-18 in naturalistic classroom contexts. We present the Train the Teacher Model (TTM) which formalizes a model for IDC researchers to use when deploying and validating an educational system. Our key findings indicate the need to work in partnership with classroom teachers, providing both initial training and continued support. This will both result in more valuable research data, and address a gap in teachers' continued professional development. The TTM aims to ensure that teachers, students and researchers can benefit from innovative educational systems deployed m real classroom contexts.
