It does matter… In September 2002, Rep. Johnny Isakson (GA), Member of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Education and the Workforce and an architect of the "No Child Left Behind" legislation, invited United Learning to present the unitedstreaming application and scientific evaluation results to members of the House of Representatives. Additionally, unitedstreaming was showcased as a model of educational technology with scientific evidence of increasing student achievement. The unitedstreaming evaluation was recently submitted to the Center for Applied Research in Educational Technology (CARET) for review and was identified as: A Type 4 Formal Research Study: Providing evidence of increased student achievement through the use of the unitedstreaming application.
