Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement

Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement
Critical Issue: Using Technology to Improve Student Achievement Contents Issue Context Research Results Factors to Consider Implications Action Options Implementation Pitfalls Illustrative Cases Contacts References Back To Top ISSUE: Because effective use of technology must be supported by significant investments in hardware, software, infrastructure, professional development, and support services, over the last decade, we as a nation have invested more than $66 billion investment in school technology (QED, 2004). While complex factors have influenced the decisions for where, what, and how technology is introduced into our nation's school systems, ultimately, the schools will be held accountable for these investments. To answer these questions, educators need to look at the research on technology and student achievement and the contextual factors that affect learning goals.

bar2007 Un guide d'action de plus en plus précis Christian Barrette, chargé de projet (Association pour la recherche au collégial (ARC)) En 2005, le bulletin Clic publiait les conclusions d’une métasynthèse des résultats d’expériences d’intégration pédagogique des TIC dans les collèges du Québec. Ce travail, que nous avons réalisé à l'initiative et avec le soutien de l’Association pour la recherche au collégial (ARC), s’inscrit dans les efforts de concertation des différents acteurs du réseau dans le domaine de l’intégration des TIC. C’est dans le mandat de l’ARC de soutenir la recherche dans le milieu collégial, d’où son intérêt à proposer une démarche visant à récupérer 20 ans de recherche portant sur les effets de l’intégration pédagogique des TIC dans l’enseignement. La démarche que nous avons retenue il y a deux ans pour faire le point quant aux effets de l’intégration pédagogique des TIC sur l’apprentissage fut celle d’une métasynthèse.

The Digital Divide Within: Creating a Level Playing Field for All Students This is a follow-up post to "1-2-3 -- Red Light!: Let's Give the Use of Technology in Classrooms the Green Light Instead." There's still a lot of talk about the digital divide in this country. I've seen it firsthand as I've worked with schools and school districts around the country on technology-leadership issues; some student populations do lots of online and computer work at home, but other schools serve students who don't have computers and Internet access at home, so the choices for after-school technology work are limited. As stated in CNN's Virtual Villages initiative, "Technology has become the driving force of change in the modern world. Clearly, leveling the playing field outside school is a huge task. But one thing I've noticed that still strikes me as just as critical is the digital divide within school buildings. Now that the school year is winding down, I believe I've seen some students make it through one more year without a lot of exposure to technology.
