  1. What Research Says about Technology and Learning Compiled by Dr. Patty LeBlanc Stetson University

  2. In Other Words, Why Bother???

  3. Research indicates that technology increases: • Positive school climate • Achievement on standardized tests • Reinforcement of learned skills • Better grades in all subjects • Motivation to learn • Improved attitude towards learning • Academic performance by Learning Disabled students

  4. Research [continued] • Measurable gains of 5-10 percentile points in math scores over several months using technology • 30% less time to learn something while using the computer, especially math and language arts [Dwyer] • Responses to math problems become more automatic [automaticity]

  5. Milken Foundation Study, 1998 • 8th graders whose teachers used computers for simulations performed better • 4th graders whose teachers used computers for math/learning games performed better • Students of teachers who had professional development in technology use scored higher on achievement tests than the comparison group. Archer, J. (1998) The link to higher scores. Education Week, 18(5), 10-21.

  6. Increased Student Motivation • Gaining learner attention • Greater time on task • Authentic tasks • Increased perception of control

  7. Increased Learning Speed • Certain skills learned 30% faster using technology (probably due to time on task and individualized learning) • Students write more • Student write better

  8. Unique Instructional Capabilities of Technology • Linking learners to information sources • Helps learners to visualize problems and solutions • Tracking of learner progress • Increased multicultural awareness • Enhanced communication skills

  9. Technology Fosters Divergent Classroom Structures • Cooperative learning • Shared intelligence • Problem solving

  10. Growth of Teachers • Stages of technology integration by teachers [Dwyer, ACOT studies]: • Beginner/novice

  11. Increased Teacher Productivity • Word processing • Assessment • Tracking • Desktop Publishing • Online communications • Resources
