Technology Increases Student Performance In Public Schools!!! A student’s performance is at its highest when they are in a hybrid style learning environment according to the U.S. Department of Education meta-analysis research study. A true hybrid environment is 50% online and 50% face-to-face instruction.meta-analysis research study THE DAILY NEWS THE WORLD’S FAVOURITE NEWSPAPER - Since 1879
“…in spite of so much talk about technology, and so much money spent buying it, little has changed in student achievement.” (Bowman) “Perhaps attendance records should include a new category: present but otherwise engaged.” (Freedman) COMPUTERS WILL REPLACE TEACHERS! “…don't see the point in computerizing classrooms while more mundane fixes have to wait, such as repairing roofs, replacing fire alarms or upgrading buildings for earthquake safety or disabled access.” (Alpert)
A National Bestseller Book!...but the same has been said about anyone in their late 40s…and the same was said about young adults back in the 1960s…which has to make a person wonder???
“…appropriate use of technology can provide learning opportunities not otherwise possible… prepare students for the 21 st century. ” (Bowman) “Technology integration isn't about replacing what we do. It is about doing what we do better.” (Bowman) “…technology is for: questioning, exploration, discovery, analysis, understanding, application, and communication.” (Bowman) “You're bringing the world into the classroom” (Alpert) “Teens gravitate to the computers…making them more likely to tackle tougher work.” (Alpert)
“Encourage the use of technology for questioning, exploration, discovery, analysis, understanding, application, and communication and discourage behavior modification and activity replacement.” “Determine the effectiveness of technology integration, and instruction in general, by the degree to which it helps students demonstrate achievement as measured against content standards.” “Focus professional development strategies on the teaching and learning process and the beliefs that underlie effective teaching, using technology to help teachers enhance their professional abilities.” “Place technology resources where learning is occurring so that they are available when needed by the learner.” (Bowman)Bowman
