Research says…

Since the 1960s, the demand for routine manual task skills has decreased, while the demand for non-routine interactive task skills has increased significantly (OECD 2007)

Technology-enhanced, project-based student work is a staple of quality knowledge work (Schlechty 2001)

Students who are engaged: learn at high levels and have a profound grasp of what they learn, retain what they learn, and can transfer what they learn to new contexts (Schlechty)

Computers and software are tools students use to create their own learning environment (Ashton, Bland, & Rogers 2001; Milken 1999)

Research says… (cont.)

Lack of student engagement is a predictor for dropping out of school even after controlling for student background and academic achievement (Rumberger 2004)

Engaged students learn more, retain more, and enjoy learning more that students who are not engaged (Dowson & McInerney 2001; Hancock & Betts 2002; Lumsden 1994; Voke 2002)

According to student surveys:

47% stated that a major reason for dropping out of school was that classes were not interesting (Gates Foundation 2006)

50% reported being bored in at least one high school class every day and 75% stated they were bored because the material was not interesting (Yazzie-Mintz 2006)

Technology can…

Increase administrator, teacher, and student engagement and productivity

Enhance curriculum, instructional strategies, and student learning

Help close the achievement gap

Break down socio-economic barriers and help reach and motivate reluctant and disenfranchised learners

Promote 21st century skills of communication, collaboration, problem-solving, creativity

WHY USE TECHNOLOGY

Research shows that technology, when used appropriately, can make a positive difference.

Technology cannot make an appreciable difference in teaching and learning if districts are not providing, and teachers and students are not using, technology in any appreciable degree.

No Child Left Behind / Title II.D Goals

Technology integration in core content areas –

Written curriculum that incorporates content and processes (such as delivery of instruction, professional development, and assessment) related to technology resources, equity of resources, research and workplace readiness skills. Technology supports overall goals and objectives and makes possible and/or enhances the use of multiple instructional resources and teaching strategies. Technology integration should be evident throughout the curriculum, as appropriate; however, technology integration does not have to be addressed in each unit or lesson.
